My Story

Coastrek = Bucket List = Amazing Opportunity to Fundraise

For many years I have seen friends doing the Coastrek walk.  Every year I have seen the fabulous shots of (mainly) women doing this amazing trek, I have thought to myself what a great event to participate in - if only I had been invited. 

Not surprisingly this year when a wonderful friend Anna tagged me in a post on Facebook promoting Coastrek, asking me if I was interested in joining her, I jumped at the chance.  Within hours we had our first team of four, and within days a second team of four.  Such is the power of Coastrek.

It's an amazing organisation/community to be part of - to say they are now a well oiled machine would be an understatement.  I particularly love the fact that they set minimum fundraising thresholds for each team - after all, what's the point of walking 30km's if it's for nought?

Once I committed to walking it was time to train. The more I learned, the more important I understood the need to actually prepare and train for the event.  Whilst I might be a runner, walking 30km is completely different.  My next step was to kick off my fundraising - and again, once I did, I was in.  Wow, the power of social media and a simple email. I was surprisingly motivated by the donations coming in from my amazing network of friends and colleagues, both to continue fundraising, but also to ensure I trained to be at my best for the walk. 

We are now about 6 weeks out from the event, and I am super excited about Melbourne Coastrek and completing this amazing adventure with our teams.  

A big thank you to everyone who has so generously contributed to my fundraising, and supporting my slightly crazy goal. You are all AWESOME!

Thanks again, yours in anticipation of blisters and sore knees and hips.
