This year I am supporting Rare Voices Australia.
This wonderful organisation supports the more than 2 million Australians living right now with a rare disease, with almost half that number being children. The reality is that most attention is directed at the individual diseases that affect the largest numbers of people. This is understandable, but when considered collectively, rare diseases affect more people in Australia than even diabetes. So we need to improve how these people and their families are supported in society.
Please support Rare Voices Australia in their wonderful efforts supporting those with a rare disease, by generously donating as I pass through your neighbourhood on the 100km walk. Review the map with my full schedule and route.
It all starts on Monday 4 November at ELS Hall Park, Kent Rd, North Ryde from 11:00am. If you’re in the area please join me for the first kilometre (or 100)! We’ll be finishing on 22 November at Eastwood Oval at about 3:00pm. I’ll be visiting local shops, schools, businesses and anyone else who will have me, shaking the can for Rare Voices Australia.
Please give generously when you see me in your neighbourhood!
Below are some pictures from my last walk for charity in 2017, in support of The Leukaemia Foundation.
