Inner West Coastrek Coolers 1

Melbourne Coastrek 30km

Just over three weeks to go!

The training continues. Over the Easter break a few of the team members under took some great walks in the Grampians and surrounds.

Thanks for the sponsorship.  The count down to the walk is on.

 

 

  

Getting those kms up and continuing our fundraising.

On the 24th of March, four members of our three teams completed the 30km and 60kms Love Me Love You Walk.  It was a great challenge on a warm, windy day.  It built further kms up in our legs as well as being a great confidence boost for Coastrek in May. 

Thanks for your support, words of encouragement and sponsorship. XX

 

 

 

Nearly at the $4000!

 

Another photo of some of the members from our three teams. Still plenty of training and fundraising going on.  Thanks for the support.   

 

 

 

Another training session

The team hopes you enjoyed your long weekend.  The team spent the morning completing a 25km walk taking in Williamstown and surrounds.  The longest team walk so far and a great effort by all members.

Thanks for your continued donations.

Now over $3300

A big thank you to all our generous sponsors, your donations so far will assist in restoring the sight of 132 people. Fantastic! Let’s keep it going.

As the quotes goes -

“If you want something done ask a busy person to do it.” In this case a ‘busy woman.’   kiss

Our three teams are made up of extremely busy woman. (Probably not unlike many other teams completing Coastrek)

Our team members are managing careers, balancing full time work in and out of the home. Between our three teams we have over 20 children, so dealing with children’s school commitments and numerous after school activities.   Along with being on school committees and helping out at school. Some members also have the added responsibility of caring for parents and other family members.

On top of all this we have added training for Coastrek, the reasons for doing this are for many something that has been on their bucket list, or a goal that they want to achieve, a challenge, the opportunity to improve their fitness, mental health and well-being and importantly fundraising for the Fred Hallows Foundations.

So once again thank you.

The teams are continuing to hit the gym this week and have walks planned over the long weekend.

Enjoy your three day weekend.

 

Over half way!

We are over half way to our goal, so another THANK YOU for your continued sponsorship.

The teams were hard at it over the weekend hitting the gym, along with increasing the distances of their walks, up to 12 and 18 kms.  Great effort by all the team members and thank you Melbourne for the sunshine. 

 

 

Introducing our three Teams - Inner West Coastrek Coolers 1, 2 and 3.

Hi Again

Our team of four will be joined by two other teams – Inner West Coastrek Coolers 2 and Inner West Coastrek Coolers 3. Twelve of us in total – we are looking forward to the challenge of completing the trek, the fun we will have along the way (13 more weeks to go!) and the opportunity to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

We are all continuing our training – some in various gyms, along with individual and team walks.

You can check our three teams out on the following links:

Thank you for your donations, the team are training hard!

A big thank you to those that have donated to our team so far, thank you for your generosity, the money is going to a fantastic cause.

The team have been hard at it training over Summer, getting those kms up in the legs.

Some training was done down at Wye River along the Great Ocean Road.

Keep it up team!

We're taking on Melbourne Coastrek!
