LCPL Nyree Hottes is running 10km
each day for 100 days straight from
February 1 to May 10 in a bid to raise
money for the Cancer Council.
Most days the run takes LCpl Hottes,
of 1 Int Bn, around Sydney's Centennial
Park or Bondi areas. She said she wanted
to get people thinking about cancer.
"Hopefully by doing this I can raise
more money and awareness.
"We all know people who suffer with
cancer. Even if you don't get it you'll
know someone who does.
"It's something that affects us all."
After several weeks of running LCpl
Hottes said she was becoming conditioned
to the run but still had some hard days.
"Today was pretty tough," she said. "Last
night I ate heaps of chocolate."
The idea of running 10km a day for
100 days was LCpl Hottes' idea.
"I wanted it to be long enough to get
people's attention but not too long that I
couldn't sustain it."
It seems to have worked. She caught
the attention of her CO, who has allowed
her to run during unit PT time, and
friends often join her for the run on

Int corporal runs to raise money
Committed: LCpl Nyree Hottes warms up for a run. She has completed 10km
every day since January 1 and will continue until May 10 to raise money for
the cancer council.
Playing the role model
Capt Bill Heck
MAKING fitness a way of life has earned Capt
Emma Grigson, of HQ 1 Div, a place in Nike's "she
runs the night" campaign and a chance to be a role
model for millions of Australian women.
The division's health operations officer, Capt
Grigson has been a part of the Nike running club
since its inception in Australia. She was selected
to join the campaign because Nike considered her
a "normal" woman who ran for enjoyment and let
nothing get in the way of her fitness.
"Most modern women have jobs, families, all
the normal life pressures, and lots of good rea-
sons why they can't maintain their fitness," she
"Most only have time after family commit-
ments and work and so the only time many have
to themselves is the evening."
One of nine Australian women selected to
be fitness ambassadors for the campaign, Capt
Grigson said the aim was to empower women
to run at night and not allow any excuses.
"If you need a group then here is a group,"
she said. "You can do it, you can do it anytime
because fitness shouldn't be a last-minute
thing -- it should be a part of a normal healthy
Capt Grigson has been in the Army for 12
years and deployed to Afghanistan in 2010
as a medical mentor based in Kandahar.
"I don't ever consider you need to be the
fastest or the strongest, it's not about that,
you just need to be out there making fit-
ness a priority to help you get more out of
your life," she said.
The "she runs the night" campaign is
being held in Sydney from February
27 to May 3. For more information
