Thank you to all of the Junior School teachers and staff at Scots All Saints College Junior School who walked with us yesterday. It was wonderful, so many people walking for a cancer cure.

Day 2 - walking with the gals

Enjoying gal time.

Day 1 of the 7 Bridges Challenge

It was lovely to visit our family in Wagga over the weekend and start the 7 Bridges Challenge with mum and dad.  Very special!

Finally our pup can walk with us!

We got our Sooty desexed. Of course, he ate the first lot of stitches and needed to go in again and be stitched up again.  This time a bigger cone.  

We nearly made it to the appointment with the vet before he wrecked it.  His stitches are out now so we don't need to hide from him anymore as he can join us on our walks.

Wow... my fundraising goals have been blown out of the water.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated or registered for the challenge in the 'Jackman Clan'.  I have to keep updating our goals.   You can't ask for more...

I’m walking for everyone who has faced cancer in their lives - we want a cure for cancer

I have been a Community Ambassador for the Cancer Council NSW for the last few years and was honoured when they asked if they could feature my story in the 7 Bridges Challenge. I’m taking on the challenge this October and will be walking 28km for people impacted by cancer.

Please sponsor me and help those affected by cancer. Every step counts because all funds raised will help Cancer Council fund life-saving research and vital support services for people impacted by cancer. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to my Sponsors
