Willow to sing for diabetes research
He's sung for PMs and rugby crowds, but John Williamson will deliver one of his most memorable concerts yet when he performs atop the 40-metre high 'Big Red' sand dune to raise funds for diabetes research.
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
One of Australia’s best-loved musicians, Williamson will perform a special sunset concert in the Simpson Desert with the iconic dune as his stage on 8 July as part of a major new charity running event called the Big Red Run.
Based out of Birdsville from 8-13 July, the Big Red Run will become the annual fundraiser of the Born To Run Foundation, a new charity founded by amateur runner Greg Donovan, whose son Stephen was diagnosed with the potentially fatal type 1 juvenile diabetes at age 14.
The songwriter who has penned Australian classics such as “True Blue”, “Cootamundra Wattle”, “Rip Rip Woodchip” and “Raining on the Rock” said he was happy to lend a hand to support people living with type 1 diabetes and excited to perform in an iconic Australian location.
ABOUT THE BIG RED RUN
The Big Red Run is Australia's first and only 250km, multi-stage desert running race, being held in the Simpson Desert from 8-13 July 2013. Based out of Birdsville, the event will give runners and walkers the option of participating in the Big Red Run, a 250km six-day stage race, the Born to Run 100km or the Big Red Dash 42km. All money raised will go to the Born to Run Foundation to fund type 1 diabetes research: www.bigredrun.com.au
