Walking for a good cause
CANCER survivor Julian Day received a helping hand from the Fingal Rovers Surf Life Saving members on Saturday while he walked through Tweed for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Mr Julian is walking from Byron Bay to Cape Moreton to raise money for the foundation.
A childhood cancer survivor, Mr Day has walked consecutive sections of the New South Wales coast in the past decade, raising funds for charities.
“The best thing is I get to meet a lot of great people along the way,” Mr Day said.
“The money we raise will go towards not only medical research but also the care and support of cancer sufferers and their families.”
Through this walk Mr Day hopes to inspire individuals and communities to participate in his 48-hour charity walk planned for August 2011.
The Waterline Challenge, founded by Mr Day, is a national fund- raising initiative for both local and national charities.
The Waterline Foundation wants Australians to walk, run, cycle, canoe, ride and push wheelchairs along the Australian coastline.
