My target 84 kms

We are walking to support care for cancer patients in Melbourne's west!

I'm taking on 42km in 21 days to show support, care and compassion for cancer patients in Melbourne's west.

The funds I raise for Western Health will support additional care initiatives for patients experiencing a cancer diagnosis and treatment, such as:

  • $50 could cover the costs of a taxi to and from a chemotherapy session for patients with limited support networks
  • $100 could help to provide a pack of essential care items to a patient diagnosed with cancer, to help cope with the various stages of treatment
  • $250 could pay for a patient to enrol in a specially tailored gym package, ensuring they are physically able to meet the challenges of chemotherapy.

Please make a donation and support my challenge. Any contribution you can make will help make a difference.

Day 1 of our challenge.

Among other 'normal' things I did today, I also did 30 mins on the treadmill - thanks very, very much to Kelly and Karl for their almost permanent loan of the great treadmill. I managed to do 2.83 kms.
Target reached for today :-) 

Before we start

Friday 29th Oct
Caitlin and I have decided the following - since their are the two of us and that we are able to participate in multiple activities in order to reach the original target of 42 kms in 21 days, we will make it 84 kms now in the same timeframe. 
The was we will generally record this is combining our individual daily totals, because we will likely do different activities most days. However, as long as we can prove that we have done a minimum of 2 kms each, everyday, 4 kms per day is what we will record.
Caitlin will have a fitness app. I'm not sure what I will have yet.
