I'm fundraising for women's cancers, and in memory of my beautiful mum

As my family and I enter the 18th month since my beautiful mum passed away and her birthday that is coming up on the 26th, the day of this wonderful virtual fundraiser, I have decided to take part in Walk for Women’s Cancer to walk towards a cancer free future for Queensland women and their families. I know 2020 has been an incredibly challenging year for most but I can't fight cancer alone and without your support. Please sponsor me today as I get pumped and ready for my 20km walk and help save the lives of Queensland women. Any and every donation will go a long way and enable the Cancer Council Queensland to invest in lifesaving research, prevention programs and patient support services for those affected. Cancer doesn't stop just because covid19 is here. Thank you for reading and thank you for your support!

Walking was and always will be one of mum's most favourite hobbies. It was her everyday routine no matter what. She loved it. So much so that some days I would get to school and have my friends tell me how they had seen her walking or running by their place or wherever they were at the time. We even had it happen a number of times when we would go back home to New Zealand around our old neighbourhood.

This is the least I could do for her and the many other ladies still fighting hard just like mum did.

Stay strong ladies, Kia Kaha x
