My List
  1. Trek to Mt Everest Base Camp

    image

    In February 2012 I joined nine other intrepid adventurers from all over Australia to trek to Everest Base Camp. On the 14 February we achieved our aim. Each of us had raised over $3000 for the Cure Cancer Australia Foundation and we had overcome so many obstacles to get there. -25 Deg and 100km/hr winds were no match for our determination… This was my first real ‘bucket list’ item… It also contributed $7648 towards my aim of raising $100000 for good causes.

  2. Visit the Empire State Building

  5. Shave my head for a good cause

    image

    In Oct 2012, I joined my team ‘The Wolfpack’ for the Sydney Ride to Conquer Cancer. The last fundraising event (the day before) was an auction to shave my noggin… I ended up raising $3781 for the event which will be counted in my aim to raise $100000 for good causes… This was a seriously well run and fun event, can’t wait to do it all again this year!
