Melbourne Coastrek 60km

I’m taking on Coastrek!

I'm taking part in Melbourne Coastrek, the ultimate team trekking and fundraising challenge, proudly supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation.  I've never walked this far in one go, and I think it also might be the first time I've done any challenge-related fundraising since my 3rd grade read-a-thon at Hills Elementary School, in Iowa US of A!

Please sponsor my trek and give the gift of sight to the needlessly blind.  I need all the help I can get....even the training walks are WAY more than I've done in awhile.  But helping to restore sight for those in need around the world is the least I can do.

I'll post pictures along the way.  Thank you for supporting me and the Fred Hollows Foundation!

Cheers,

Kelly

Kell is very special. Like a pizza oven that never disappoints with soggy or burnt pizza bases. She loves a walk, not the ‘long walk on the beach type’ more the kick arse, I’m gunna walk around the globe (Forrest’s Gump style). No challenge is too great, but many are too small for this all-conquering long-walker. I fully expect she will be admitted to the Walkers Hall of Fame in due course. That award will sit comfortably next to her several Walk of Shame awards

You're amazing gorgeous girl! You are crazy, but signing up and committing to this cause is fantastic! I sincerely hope you don't end up with blisters,, aching feet, hips, ankles and knees that stop you from a enjoying a celebratory drink at the end!
