My Activity Tracking

kms

Reached $1000!

Honestly speechless at the outpouring of support for the cause. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and/or shared the word to spread the message of care for those who need it.

Still a little time before the walk, so I'm going to sneaky up the goal a little... ;D (hehe) Thank you again! We'll work hard!

????! 

Reached $500!

Thank you to everyone for supporting the cause!! Every dollar will really help those affected by cancer so it really means a lot to them, and me :')

The $500 goal was reached, which is mindblowing, so for the sake of going a little harder since there's still time until the walk, I'll be upgrading the goal once more :D 

Once again, thank you all so much! None of this could happen without people caring about others in need, and that's all of you fabulous people ;) 

I'll work hard!

I’m walking to help people facing cancer

Hello, all who may have stumbled on this page.

I'm walking with my good friends from my primary/high school days to raise money for those affected by cancer, as detailed in the paragraphs below the dashed page break.

It personally means a lot to me because not only did my mother have cancer in the past, my father did as well and passed away when I was 12. 

It was a long time ago now, but I remember how difficult it was for my mother: to support three kids and a terminally-ill husband by herself; to pay the medical expenses on only her own pay, as dad could no longer work; to get educated on everything and, in turn, teach us how to care for someone with cancer. 

My friends and I would like to contribute, even just through something like a long walk (haha), to raising awareness on the situation many people face and hopefully inspire others to help in whatever way they can. It can feel dreadfully lonely for people affected, even peripherally, so hopefully this event helps them feel a little less alone. :D

-----

I’m shining bright for people facing cancer and walking 21km over one weekend with Walking Stars. 

Every year more than 35,000 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’.  

Thanks in part to generous Victorians, 7 in 10 of them will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis, but there’s still so much work to be done.  

Cancer Council needs our support more than ever this year. Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future. By supporting my walk, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services that ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
