Zoe Reihben – Cupid’s Race Director Brisbane
Mummy to 3 beautiful children, CTF advocate, Cupids organiser, Policy Advisor.
Why have you decided to become a Race Director?
For a few simple reasons – to support the amazing work of the CTF; to promote hope; to assist in raising much needed funds to provide further support for NF sufferers in Australia; and to allow for the continuation of life saving clinical trials and medical research. But mostly it’s about hope – hope for a brighter future for those affected by NF, and hope for a cure.
Before Cupid’s, how aware were you of NF?
We became aware of NF in the most devastating of ways – in a doctors office last year, holding our newborn baby and receiving the news that our beautiful baby had NF1.
Will you be dressing up, or dressing down?
I will be dressing up! I think the look of Summer 2017 (or specifically 19 Feb 2017) will be a mix of pinks and red, some running tights, a pair of Bonds cupids undies over the top, angel wings and possibly even a feather boa. Or maybe a tutu. I think one of the great things about this event is that it allows us to take a break from constant worry and to seek out bit of laughter and fun.
Are you running as part of a team for Cupid’s Undie Run?
We have a large team and it’s growing by the day! Everyone is welcome to join Emme’s Cupids.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
To put back together broken lives, broken spirits, and broken bodies. And maybe to teleport. That would be useful too 😉
Which ambassador do you most want to meet and why?
All of them! I wish I could be at all of the events at once so I could meet all the incredible ambassadors! (which, incidentally, I could do if I were able to teleport. Just saying).
What is your number one goal for your event?
To create an event that is filled to the brim with wonderful, generous, happy people, all getting together to support our wonderful little NF heroes.
