Emily Simmons

Three Capes Lodge Walk Tasmania

I'm fundraising for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation!

On 28 April 1996 at the historical Port Arthur site in Tasmania, 35 people were tragically killed.  Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, along with their mother, died that day.

I was in grade 6 at the time - almost two hours' drive away in the Derwent Valley, but remember hiding under school desks as the news of the Port Arthur atrocity spread.

Because of this terrible act of violence, Alannah and Madeline's father, Walter Mikac AM, and a small group of volunteers, worked to set up the Foundation with the belief that all children should have a safe and happy childhood without being subjected to any form of violence.

Having recently returned to Tasmania, I am taking part in a special 25th anniversary event in April 2022 to walk the Three Capes Track with my mum, Wendy for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.

Please dig deep to help keep our children safe from violence.

Thank you to my Sponsors
