Sunshine Walk 2023

We're walking in memory of a dear friend taken too early by cancer

We're fundraising to support the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund. Regional people deserve the very best in treatment and care, just like people in capital cities.

Every cent we raise will stay in our region to help local people impacted by cancer. People going through the cancer journey should be able to do it close to home, where they can be supported by their family, friends and communities.

The funds we raise through the Sunshine Walk will help pay for new equipment for earlier diagnosis and treatment. It will pay for staff training, so the local workforce can stay up to date with the rapidly changing world of cancer treatment. It will be invested in research, providing local people access to national drug trials, and it will support wellness services, like psychology, exercise programs and support groups.

Everyone in our community knows someone affected by cancer, so let's come together to support this vital local service. Every dollar counts!

Bed in the new shoes - 15 km walk

Tuesday 31st Oct
Time to bed in the new shoes before the big walk on 12th November. My old shoes have been retired after 1152 km in 1 year and are worn out.

Yesterday was my first walk of 5 km - no issues. Today was the big test of shoes and body to see if training is on track. Glad to report that all went well:

 - distance walked = 15.3 km
 - time = 2hr 26 min
 - pace = 9:33 min/km

Based on that pace, I expect to walk the 20 km course in 3 hr 10 mins. We will see on 12th November.

Current amount raised is $413, with target at $1000. Looking good for this great cause.

Thank you to my Sponsors

Remembering Mark. I’ve still got Mark’s photos from his funeral stuck on the wall above my computer screen. In one he’s pounding through the powder. The other is of him smiling and watching me. I like to think he’s now doing both.
