From Special Operations to Special Causes
As Warrant Officer Class Two in Australia’s Special Operations, Ollie Page was amongst the most highly regarded.
His troop Commander, Andrew Hastie said
“Ollie is a legend:
Training memory from 2012 in the West Pacific off Guam. We roped onto a moving cargo ship, from US special ops Black Hawks, under night vision, to interdict a weapon of mass destruction. I was Troop Commander, he was the EOD. SEALs boarded by boat, climbing up on caving ladders. Took all night, we got back at first light”.
Now he plans to run an incredible SEVEN MARATHONS in SEVEN DAYS starting in Perth 1st July 2019 and continuing to the 7th July 2019, SEVEN consecutive MARATHONS, across 6 states (and one territory – to make the “seven”) , in SEVEN days.
The Bravehearts in the 777 Marathon involves runners of all ages and abilities.
Of his decision to support Bravehearts 777 Ollie says “Kids should be able to enjoy their lives”
