Today was the day

Starting at 3:50am at Elizabeth Quay, I headed to the barrows bridge and followed the dual use path all the way to Mandurah 
Arriving a little ahead of time and not to stiff or sore either
Thanks to everyone that supported this challenge 
Let’s keep the  efforts going so we hit our target 
Thanks again everyone 

Perth CBD to Mandurah foreshore walk

Having overcome injury in March 2013 and being advised I’d need a aid to walk agin for the rest of my life, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia February 2020,. COVID closed the gym so I started outdoor exercise instead. I found release and a desire to keep going and extend myself. 
So let’s do something different and see if I can do something tangible to raise $50,000 to assist in finding a cure for leukaemia. so June 5th Im walking to Mandurah from Perth all 74km or 91,500 steps, please support this mission and together we can reach the goal and even surpass it 

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

I am fundraising to help the 47 Australians who will know that they have blood cancer by the end of today — and for the 47 families who will face the same devastating news tomorrow. 

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money I raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives. 

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
