Neil's Walk from Perth to Albany along Albany Highway
Neil's Walk is in loving memory of Neil Stephens.
Neil was a fit and healthy guy who loved a laugh, was very thoughtful, kind and caring who several days before his forty fifth birthday, in August 2009 was diagnosed with T Cell Prolymphocitic Leukaemia, a very rare form of the disease. Sixteen months later in December 2010 his battle with Leukaemia ended.
The family along with friends and anyone wishing to join us, are walking from the Inglewood Hotel in Perth commencing Sunday 30th September 2012 at 8.00 a.m. and finishing at the White Star Hotel in Albany on Wednesday 10th October, 2012 for lunch.
We hope to spread awareness of leukaemia and other blood cancers and along the way raise money to help this worthy cause.
We are happy for anyone to join us for parts of the walk, or even for the entire trip. So get some sponsors and walk with us. The walk will be done relay style so you can walk for an hour or two, half a day, all day, whatever you are comfortable doing.
Shirts are available, if you would like one please contact Gayle or leave a message below, cost $25.00 each. They are white polo shirts with Neils's Walk across the back and Leukaemia Foundation logo on the front.
If you would like to walk with us, please contact one of the coordinators or send a message. We will send you a sponsorship form, or your fireinds can donate online, so your walking will be rewarded, with funds to this great cause.
