Evie Walks Mount Wellington for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation
About Eve ~ formally a Hobart girl, born in Battery Point and a Graduate of the University of Tasmania.
I grew up in Tasmania with my parents who migrated from Europe, my mum being an Academic and dad a returned Soldier ~ Rat of Tobruk of whom I am very proud.
Having worked within the Tourism Industry in Tasmania, the affiliation with Port Arthur was ongoing, promoting this historic destination with the Port Arthur Tourism Authority on an international marketing platform.
On 28 April 1996, I was informed by family that a cousin had lost their life at Port Arthur on that day.
As Tasmanians we rallied together, but the impact was tough and affected families like ours for years to come.
The positive effect was to not give up ~ this was an opportunity to not succumb to the outcome violence, bullying or the negative impact of the loss of life.
The difference was to create a positive attitude and broad awareness of how we can generate kindness in the light of adversity.
The reason for this Fundraiser is to achieve the starting goal of $2,500 (as it’s the 25th Anniversary of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation) and the big hearted goal of $21K (a thousand dollars per kilometre (being the distance of Point to Pinnacle ~ the world’s toughest half marathon) for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation to contribute to their initiatives: Buddy Bags, Early Years Trauma Consultancy Service, Children Ahead and Cubby House.
It is also a way to continue generating awareness of the incredible work the Alannah & Madeline Foundation do by walking from Wrest Point in Sandy Bay to the top of Mount Wellington on November 20, 2022.
Through exceeding oneself for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation indicates that nothing is impossible to create a positive outcome.
If I could walk to the moon and back for this Team ~ I would ~ to make a difference.
