Melbourne Coastrek 30km

Coastrek in the eyes of a 7 year old supporter

One day 7 year old Maddy was playing with her brother and my son when she asked me "Why are you and mum always doing really long walks?"
My reply was that we were walking 30km to try to raise money to get doctors and special equipment to people that don't have access to them.  Then came the second "Why?"  
I said because there are kids and big people who are blind and can't see, when they don't need to be, so if we can get help to them they don't have to be blind.
"Oh Ok.  Sarah, can I have some paper and textas to draw, and some BBQ shapes please?"
15 minutes later I got this beautiful picture given to me...
With 2 why's answered, this clever and generous girl understood what we were trying to achieve and was happy to share her mum with me for our training walks so we could help people to see again.  Thanks for inspiring and cheering us on (and for your fab picture of us) Maddy!

We're taking on Coastrek!

We are Rick (Art House Group), Sarah (Oak Tree Osteopathy), Janelle (School of Retail) & Ryan (Rycon Building Group).

So far we have been training in pairs around the Eastern Suburbs but over the Easter Break we did our first team walk (20km - mostly on sand and sandy trails!) and survived.  Aside from being very tired and having sore calf muscles we are now almost ready for our 30km trek in 5 weeks time. 

We would love you to help us reach our fundraising goal of $2000.

Please sponsor our trek and give the gift of sight to the needlessly blind.

Thank you so much

Sarah, Janelle, Rick & Ryan
