My target 110 kms

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the Darkness to Daylight Challenge!

In Australia on average 110 people die from Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) every year.

I’m participating in Darkness to Daylight (D2D) - a 110km run - where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost. It’s a long distance, it’s physically and mentally demanding but knowing the funds raised go towards DFV prevention makes it all worth it.

I would very much appreciate your support because together we can end domestic and family violence.

 

My Updates

Made it

Monday 31st May
Cooper & I finally made it to 110K this morning. He couldn't go to the final 3K in the Botanical Gardens because he is not allowed. Anyhow we have had a great time walking together. Attached are the final entries in my spreadsheet. You can see we only made it by 160m. It was a bit of a struggle to keep it up over the month but well worth it.

My progress so far

Saturday 22nd May
Ah technology - so wonderful  (when it works!).
My phone measures my distance walked
My phone connects me to my favourite podcasts as I walk
My bluetooth ear buds make it easier
My spreadsheet graphs my progress.

Cooper and I just do the walking.  

You can see we got behind there a couple of times but have caught up after a couple of extra walks in the afternoon.

My trusty walking mate

Tuesday 18th May
Cooper has covered 61 klm with me - every step of the way. He even has his own sponsorship.  He turned one on Mother's Day.
He sometimes gets too hot and lies down on the cool grass and can't be budged for several minutes.  He also doesn't like the garbage bin next to the bus stop in Stannard Road (Manly West).  He refuses to walk past it so we have to cross the road.  Anyhow, just a few more steps to help get us to the total.

I am on track

Tuesday 4th May
Of course I had to create a spreadsheet to record my daily walks and compare the total to the required total.  At the 4-day mark Cooper & I have walked 14.58k and are 0.39k ahead of schedule.

Cooper bailed up a couple of times this morning as I think he got too hot.

Thanks for all the donations.
