So I was taking a toilet stop last year after running the Spit Track near Manly NSW last year and saw on the toilet door a poster advertising the Wild Women on Top Coastrek – an annual fund raiser for the Fred Hollows Foundation. Having long admired the amazing work of the late Fred Hollows – continued by his wife and daughters – I decided to take part. I then roped in my daughter Ariel and mates Talitha Stone (who has featured on my blog in other challenges and exploits) and Pepita March, another partner in adventure (including midnight soccer in the middle of nowhere).
This map shows the route we’ll be taking on the 55km endurance trek March 6. Our team is ‘Tribe 20 20’.
Our goal is to raise $2500 – we’re not there yet! Please visit my fundraising page and you’re your donation. Did you know that 4 out of 5 people who are blind and live in developing countries don’t need to be! Their sight can be restored with a mere $25!
$25, 25 minutes later – this 7 year old boy can now see!
Thank you Runners Shop for partnering with us!
Delighted to announce the Runners Shop in Canberra as our first official sponsor!
How lovely to meet store manager Emily –If there was a Phd in runners she’d have three of them – what she doesn’t know about running shoes isn’t worth knowing! And as a bonus, this hardcore athlete and body builder is a supporter of my work! Here’s me, Ariel and Emily on Friday and Ariel outside the store with her brand new Brookes runners, thanks to the Runners Shop.
