Walk-A-Thon In Loving Memory of David Jinks

Almost there!

Today is a tough day. 
Today marks exactly 12 months since we lost our great mate David Jinks. This walkathon challenge has given me plenty of time alone and helped me reflect on all the fun we had together but also the fun times we'll never get to have. By raising funds and awareness for the Heart foundation we hope that we can help someone else's mate, parent or partner live a long and happy life.
With only 4 days to go to try and reach the 300km target I'm happy to say I'm on track and need to walk about 8km per day for the last few days. Huge thanks to everyone that has sponsored me so far and if you can spare any cash I'd love for you to help me reach my $750 target (we're only $70 short!!) 
I'll post a final update on Nov1st once we're done but thanks again for all your support and hope everyone's keeping safe and well

Walkathon - In loving memory of David Jinks

We’ve taken on a challenge to Do it for Heart!

We lost a very good friend and colleague David Jinks almost 12 months ago and are raising some funds and awareness for the Heart Foundation by completing a walkathon with my workmates from ITW over the month of October. In honour of Jinksy I will be aiming to walk 300kms for the month of October and would appreciate any donations (big or small) to go towards heart research. 

We are passionate about saving Australian Hearts and we need your help to create change. That’s why we are fundraising for the Heart Foundation – and we hope you’ll support us in this.

Heart disease remains Australia’s biggest killer, claiming 48 lives every day. Your donation will help the Heart Foundation to transform Australia’s heart health by:

  • Funding life-changing heart research
  • Supporting health professionals working to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease
  • Providing heart-healthy programs and resources for everyday Australians.

Please make a donation today, click the donate button. Every donation, big or small will help me get closer to our goal.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you’ll get a receipt by email as soon as you make your donation

Thank you for your support.

Thank you to my Sponsors
