Chrissie, Sam & Browny to broadcast live from the Big Apple

Staff Writer

Nova 100’s Jonathon ‘Browny’ Brown is no stranger to setting and reaching goals in his duties as an AFL footballer and broadcaster. Now, he’s got a marathon dream.

Nova 100 and Underworks have come together to support his mission to raise funds and awareness for the EB Research Foundation when he tackles the 2019 New York City Marathon.

Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny will broadcast their show live from the Big Apple to support Browny as he pounds the pavement on behalf of EB Research Foundation.

EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) is a debilitating skin disorder that leaves sufferers in daily pain. Children with EB are sometimes referred to as ‘butterfly children’ because their skin is as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.

It’s a cause Browny is more than happy to support.

“I am an Ambassador and it’s very close to my heart as a family friend has EB,” he said.

“I was asked at the end of last year by EB, a horrible skin disease, if I’d like to be their representative to run the NY marathon and it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.

“Thanks to wonderful people at Underworks for getting on board to make this happen and for supporting this worthy cause.”

Their first show live in NY will go live an hour after Browny is expected to cross the finish line.

The team will also explore the sights and sounds of New York all week from November 4.
