Alice springs here we comeWell we are here in Alice the adventure has begun. The weather is beautiful, My preparation for the hike for hope has had its ups and downs. Over the last 12 weeks we have had some significant family events including the arrival of a new baby sister for Tilly and the passing of my father Inlaw and a whole lot more in between. To say it has been difficult to keep up the training would be and understatement. On top of that 3 weeks ago I hurt my back limiting my capacity to do very much at all!!! Through this training journey I didn’t loose any weight, I did get to the gym but not as often as I wanted or needed. I did loads of walking but probably not as much as I should have and annoyingly none in the bush. I am fitter than I was and through the help of some wonderful people we have raised over $8000.
I am fundraising for a future where no child suffers from Sanfilippo Syndrome.
I am hiking the Larapinta Trail in June 2021! It's going to be a big challenge. I have a lot of work to do to get fit enough to finish the challenge. But it's nothing compared to the challenge facing kids with Sanfilippo. Our little Granddaughter Matilda (Tilly) has this condition and if by hiking Larapinta I can raise funds for research then I will give it my best shot. I will need as much encouragement as you can offer. Your donations will be very much appreciated. If you would like to hold a fundraiser please do, if you would like to join me on my training walks I would love it. I need you all to keep me true to the course.
Peter and I will pay for all the costs of the trip so 100% of your donation will go towards funding vital research projects that show potential to halt disease progression; repair damage caused by the condition; or improve the quality of life for children suffering from Sanfilippo.
All donations over AU $2 are fully tax deductible.
Thanks so much for your support.
