I'm digging deep for the land I love

My Activity Tracking


My target 120 kms

I’m taking on the Groundwork Challenge!

1 in 5 Australian mammals are on the endangered species list.

That’s why from 16 November until 16 December, I’m digging deep for the land I love.

I’ve committed to running/walking/rolling every day to protect our native species and their precious habitats.

Please support me and help protect the land we all call home by making a tax deductible donation to Bush Heritage Australia.

Together, we can help restore the bush and protect our native species.

Keep on walkin'

Saturday 12th Dec
Decided that I'm going to keep on going with my walks, right up until the end of the challenge. But your help, support and a donation will help our environment more than just walking.

100km done!

Hit my 100km! Yay!
Pretty chuffed with hitting my goal.
But I'll keep going!
Tap on the link here and for every dollar donated I'll add a kilometre. The more you donate, the more i walk. Plus you can suggest a name for my Walking Wombat!
