Byron Coast Charity Walk 36km

I'm fundraising for...

The Rescue Helicopter Service, walking 36km from Byron Bay to Ballina in the 2022 Byron Coast Charity Walk.

Every dollar raised contributes to keeping the Rescue Helicopter Service available 24/7, 365 days a year.
The AW139 helicopters are flying intensive care units. They can carry two patients or a baby infant carrier.
The AW139’s cost $1,000 per hour in fuel, $1,000 per hour to run the engine, $1,500 for the airframe and for $500 avionics, that’s a total of $4,000 per hour.

Support my fundraising page to keep the helicopters and crews ready to respond when needed.

My Updates

2022 Challenge Journey has started

Wednesday 26th Jan
2022 is a restart on 2020. Sadly covid postponed my first crack at this walk thanks to my physio providing me some suggestions. After taking on Kokoda & The Bloody Long Walk in 2021, I can't wait for this. My happy place is the beach so this will make it easy to kick my personal time goal.

Thank you to my Sponsors
