PROUD SUPPORTERS OF 7 BRIDGES WALK
Seven News Anchor, Mark Ferguson
QUESTIONS TO MARK
What are you most excited for at Cancer Council's 7 Bridges Walk this year?
This year, I am excited to help raise awareness and hopefully raise plenty of money along the way. Every dollar helps in the battle.
How many years have you participated in 7 Bridges Walk?
I have participated in 7 Bridges Walk since 2011, so this will be my 12th year walking alongside Cancer Council NSW.
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 a cancer free future. 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?
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 22 October.
