31 years old from Darwin Emma decided to try out for the Project to encourage others and show how running, and sport in general can increase confidence, especially for Indigenous women. She wants to be a role model for the next generation, and to make people around her proud to be Indigenous. Emma is a keen sportswoman, and has been involved in netball from a young age, representing the Northern Territory. Emma has been heavily involved in fundraising for the Project, and has raised close to $2000 through her community. Emma suffered a knee injury prior to the 30km time trial in Alice Springs in September, and is training hard for the Boston Marathon in April, 2013, after finishing a 30km run in Canberra in February.
