Congratulations to the walkers and support crew who crossed the finishing line in Werribee last Saturday after walking for 9 days and 200 grueling kilometres along the trails of Ned Kelly in the Wangaratta area. Despite being a little weary and foot sore, they arrived in good spirits and were very proud that they had done their bit to help terminally-ill children and their families enjoy some quality of life.
On the second-last day, they walked 15 kilometres along the Maribyrnong River to the Royal Children's Hospital where the Medical Director of the Palliative Care Unit, Dr Jenny Hynson, and her staff were there to warmly greet them.
On the final day, they walked around the Werribee area for another 15 kilometres before reaching the finishing line at the Bridge Hotel. President Joe Cumbo congratulated the whole team. He said the club was very proud of their efforts. He then presented a cheque for $1000 to the organisers on behalf of the club.
