Todays the day!!It’s not too late to join team Carpe Diem and/or donate! Melbourne has turned it on for us ??
Toni and Heath, The Amazing Race Australia 2022 winners!
On Saturday, 3 December, we’ll be putting our best foot forward for people affected by cancer.
I’m Toni, and I was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and then terminal/secondary breast cancer in 2021. I’m participating in Walking Stars to raise awareness and much-needed funds to support Cancer Council Victoria’s cancer research, prevention, and support services.
When I was diagnosed, I wanted to create life-long memories with my husband, Heath.
We were doing lots of walking on the Amazing Race.
I’ve always found exercise as a great way to escape from cancer. I always made my netball match during my treatment, no matter how ill I was. It was one hour of switching off and being with my friends. It helped clear the mind.
We’ve had some of our best conversations, Heath and I when we’re walking the dog. It’s a cathartic activity.
Heath: Exercise has been very helpful for my mental health, especially since Toni’s second diagnosis.
The Amazing Race
Since taking part in the The Amazing Race Australia, we have received many inspiring messages of support from other people affected by cancer.
We went on the show to raise awareness and to get people to be mindful of their health. We also wanted to show people that even if you do get a diagnosis of cancer – even if it is terminal – that there’s still a life to live!
We’ve received a lot of messages from people who have been diagnosed with cancer. They’ve been like: you’ve made us stop feeling sorry for ourselves. If you can go out there and race around the world – and win – we can go for a walk every day.
I live by the motto: Carpe Diem, also known as Seize the Day.
It’s always been a part of my life, and my dad always said; that’s how I live my life. I’m always going a hundred miles an hour.
Heath agrees: I follow Toni’s motto. She has shown me a lot since we’ve been together –how to grasp life and to go out there and live it.
We’ve raced around the world for eight weeks carrying very heavy backpacks, so the least all of you can do is come join us walking around Melbourne for a half-a-marathon and donate.
Let’s do this!
