Walk-A-Thon In Loving Memory of David Jinks

We Did It! Well Done and Thank You!

Woooooop Wooooooop! We did it. 300.86 km's walked in 31 days for such a great cause! Thank you so much to everyone that donated to not only me but to the Heart foundation cause in honour of our mate Jinksy!

Thank you to those who walked with me  and helped me along the way and well done to the ITW Proline team for doing such an amazing job in reaching and smashing our target!

10 days to go!

200.3 km down with 10 days to go! Thank you again to everyone who has donated and also to the people that have donned their runners and come for a walk with me. I really appreciate the support with this great cause!

Nearly Half Way!

Quick update - as we reach the half way mark of the Walkathon I'm still managing to get at least 10km a day in. My little pins are getting pretty sore as I am trying to throw a bit of a canter in to break up the walk. 132.3km down. Only 167.7km to go!

8 day mark!

Hi all, quick update at the 8 day mark. I've managed to get an extra 2km's under my belt for a rainy day. I've walked 82km so far. Thanks so much again for everyone's generosity towards such a brilliant charity. I've been wrapped to have my little son Charlie on his pushy next to me on a couple of walks. He didn't let the rain stop us as we walked/ran/road around the home of the mighty Geelong Cats!

Day 3 & 4!

Saturday 3rd October....Great walk around the beach with my little 10 year old son Charlie in tow on his bike on Saturday. Just what I needed - My little mate giving me some inspiration by telling me to move those short, strong stumpy legs a bit faster! 

Sunday 4th October....Managed to do a bit of a walk / run for my 10km today finished it in 1hour 22min. Certainly no Kerrie Saxby but nice little blow out!

Amazing that we have reached our $8k goal already. Proud to be  aprt of this!

Day 2!

Another cracking morning walk under my belt. Overwhelmed with all the support my Family and friends have showed towards this great cause. I'll keep plugging away with my 10km a day walks and give you an update on my progress next week. ❤

We are away!

I won't bother everyone with a day to day update but just letting you know I'm away with a nice 10km early morning walk this morning with my brother Adam. Thanks again for all your support!

Walkathon - In loving memory of David Jinks

One of my work colleagues and friends David Jinks lost his life 12 months ago and in his honour we are raising some funds and awareness for the heart foundation by completing a walkathon. 

Along with my workmates from ITW, over the month of October, I will be aiming to walk 300km's for the month and would appreciate any donations (big or small) to go towards heart research! Thank you so much in advance! I will keep you posted on my progress throughout the month! 

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

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.
