Cyril Jackson High School Health Festival

Posted by Grahak Cunningham on Thursday, May 7, 2015,

I went to Cyril Jackson School yesterday and spoke to some of the youth. They hosted a huge health festival that's held annually every year. It is not an academic school but specialises mainly in vocational education. You get well looked after. The students studying hospitality come around and feed everyone as well as serving up morning tea. The kids studying event management help everyone set up their booths and the students studying theater check everything is aesthetic.

Running by the Murray

Posted by Grahak on Saturday, December 13, 2014,
One of my favourite schools we visited on our run from Adelaide to Canberra as part of the Peace Run was Mannum Community College. The message of running to the goal of peace is always reinforced when teachers inspire the youth and students and take the message up before the Peace Run arrives. This is exactly what happened at Mannum. The children were motivated by their peers and teachers to offer art, poetry and songs.

They had already watched several DVD's on the run and had a huge 'Welcome...

Youth Speaker at Helena College

Posted by Grahak on Wednesday, December 3, 2014,
I spoke to some of the youth at Helena College Graduation Ceremony on Friday evening. It was the keynote presentation and I talked about my memories of graduation. Not having any goals, dreams or ideas of what I wanted to do and that being OK because I gave 100% to being the best I could at what ever I was doing. Whether it was academic and socially related, giving 100% and improving myself kept doors open for me for when I had more clarity on where I was heading.



It was an inspiring event. T...

Motivational Speakers, Youth Speakers and the Legacy of Mandela

Posted by Grahak on Friday, January 3, 2014,


The passing of this great man has led to a lot of reflection about his life. He was an inspirational to everyone and corporate and youth speakers will be quoting his wisdom for centuries."The greatest glory in living is not in never failing," he said. "But in rising every time we fall."

So what are some of the things we can learn from his life and times?

Resilience

Incarcerated for 27 years the man never lost his dignity or hope."You must fight the battle for dignity," he stated. "We put our foo...

President Nelson Mandela and Running in Iceland

Posted by grahak777 on Friday, December 6, 2013,
Outside of my last run across the Nullarbor and the 3100 mile race, one of the most memorable runs I have done is the Peace Run in and around Iceland. The Peace Run is an international torch relay that promotes peace and friendship through running.

Sadly a living representative of this ideal passed away today: President Nelson Mandela, who I think, did more than just end apartheid. He taught the world about forgiveness. Incarcerated for 27 years for trying to free his people, upon his release ...

Teen and Youth Speaker on the Nullarbor

Posted by grahak777 on Monday, September 23, 2013,

I led a team across the Nullarbor through May and June. It was great running and the weather was fantastic. Adelaide to Perth is about 3000km all up and you really get to see it from a different perspective running rather than driving or flying. There is something about camping under the stars and running in the middle of nowhere.

 

There was an international group of runners: Australians, Mongolians, Romanians, Austrians, Kiwis and Americans. It was relay style run where each runner did be...
