PROUD SUPPORTERS OF 7 BRIDGES WALK

MARK FERGUSON

"Battling cancer is really tough and raising money to fight cancer can be hard work as well. But the 7 Bridges Walk makes fundraising so easy. All you have to do is get sponsored, then walk over, around and beside the best harbour in the world with family or friends. You will be doing so much good with each step so please get involved. I hope to see you there.”
Seven News anchor, Mark Ferguson

7 QUESTIONS TO MARK

What are you most excited for at Cancer Council's 7 Bridges Walk this year?

It's a fantastic event that every year seems to outdo itself. There's nothing better than seeing the local community come together - not just by being there on the day but walking as far as their feet will take them. It's a really lovely day out.

How many years have you participated in 7 Bridges Walk?
This year will be my seventh walking the 7 Bridges Walk with Seven News. Trying saying that five times fast!
Why do you participate in the 7 Bridges walk?
It's such a wonderful way to take in our beautiful city and do a little bit of exercise; all while raising lifesaving funds for cancer research. It's a great day out for the whole family.
Do you have any tips for the day?

Stay well hydrated, apply your sunscreen and hat, wear your most comfortable joggers and don't forget to look up and take in our fabulous city.

7News has supported the event for many years, what's your favourite 7 Bridges Walk memory?

Way back in 2012, two of my sons, Jack and Ted – eight and 12 at the time - walked with me. We had a great day. But I think just meeting the many people along the way - those walking in memory of or to support their loved ones, their friends, colleagues, classmates all battling the disease. Truly inspiring people.

What's your favourite part of the Walk?
That moment you step foot on the Sydney Harbour Bridge along with thousands of other people, it's powerful knowing we've all come together to raise much-needed funds and awareness for such an important cause.
Why should the community get involved and fundraise?
The harsh reality is too many of us know someone who is battling or has battled cancer. Many have lost their lives and some have come out the other side. We can all do our little bit to support them. I'll see you on one of the 7 Bridges on Sunday 28 October.

QUESTIONS TO TERESA

What are you most excited for at Cancer Council's 7 Bridges Walk this year?

Taking part in an event like the 7 Bridges Walk has a beautiful community spirit and is connected to health and well-being about which I am passionate.

Why are you participating in the 7 Bridges walk?

My business partner, husband and best friend, Paul, lost his mother to cancer. It was a very painful time in his and his family’s life. Being an ambassador for Cancer Council NSW and the 7 Bridges Walk is a way to connect with his story and acknowledge what individuals and their families are going through and to give back.

The 7 Bridges Walk is a fantastic opportunity for Cancer Council to raise awareness of their cause. I believe in giving back wherever you can. By taking part in the 7 Bridges Walk I can help bring Cancer Council’s outstanding support and research programs to the public consciousness. I feel incredibly proud to be contributing to that.

Will you be doing any training or preparation in the lead up to the day?

My morning ritual is my one hour walk every morning around Centennial park before I head off to work. It's my meditation and exercise rolled into one, and it honestly does wonders for my well-being. Regular exercise and good nutrition in the lead up to any event of this nature are key. 

Why should the community get involved and fundraise?

The 7 Bridges Walk is a great way to enjoy good company, great exercise and most importantly to help make a difference to individuals, families and friends struggling with cancer.

Taking part in the 7 Bridges Walk sees you contributing to Cancer Council NSW, but you are also investing in your physical health and well-being. It's a win-win situation!
