1000 kms for $1000

By Val Thiagarajan

Completed 1000kms!!!

Successfully completed 1000kms today! Thank you all for your support!! 
I shall continue to walk regularly going forward and double the kms for every dollar donated over the initial goal of $1000. 

Good walk week...

Past eight days has been good for the walk, nice weather, did 105kms. Completed 925kms in total as of 7th Nov. That leaves me with 75kms to be done in 7 days.   Very much achievable 😊🤞🤞

Rainy week..

With so much rain in Sydney, this week has been the most challenging week to walk in outdoors. Did only 70kms this week. Total distance covered till date is 820kms. 

Got 180kms to go in 16 days, fingers crossed 🤞 
Thanks for all your support. 

The Journey...

I started walking long distances regularly from August 2020. Then developed a passion for walking, did walk about 10kms every day since. Completed 750kms as of 21 Oct 2020. 
Heart disease is the biggest killer in Australia. I wanted to raise funds for Heart Foundation to save lives. Hope you can help me to reach my goal $1000 for 1000kms by 14 Nov 2020. 
Many thanks to my family, all my friends  and colleagues who encourage, motivate and at times accompany me too in achieving the goal, 1000kms. 

Thanks for all your overwhelming support for such a good cause and help me achieve the goal within hours!!! I shall continue to walk and double the kms for every dollar donated over the set goal. Thank you again :-) 

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

I’m passionate about saving Australian Hearts and I need your help to create change. That’s why I’m fundraising for the Heart Foundation – and I hope you’ll support me 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.
