Local business owner, Garth Anesbury of Kwik Kopy Hilton, recently completed the gruelling Big Red Run ultra-marathon in the Simpson Desert, where he has helped raise over $6,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Fundraising is still open until September for the community to donate.

One of only 52 people to undertake the race, Garth said the race was truly life-changing.

“Not only was the six-day run extremely challenging physically but also mentally. It really drove home that when you set your mind to a long-term goal and work toward it, you can achieve anything. This same mindset is what drives me in business,” says Anesbury.

“While I want to get the message out that persistence and endurance leads to success, I also want to appeal to the community to help us raise funds for children who suffer with this debilitating disease,” adds Anesbury.

Juvenile diabetes Type1, is an autoimmune disease that destroys cells in the pancreas, so the body has no ability to make insulin. This differs to Type 2 where the body has a reduced ability to make insulin due to lifestyle factors.

“Another reason this run has been so meaningful to me is that I want to inspire my daughter to keep persevering in life, no matter what challenges she sees in front of her. I want to do good in the community and also inspire other business leaders to strive for excellence in the work they do by constantly challenging themselves,” says Anesbury.

For more than a decade Anesbury has run Kwik Kopy Hilton with the same passion and dedication that has seen the business flourish. He works closely with his customers to help them achieve their own business goals by offering print, design and digital services.
