First to my
for their time and continued support and encouragement.
in Canada, who together have spent hours building me a great web page. Chris has taken
the ‘brunt’ of my frustrations and stress and been very patient with me, as well as taking
care of me and my co-walkers on the road. When I had no-one else to walk with me he has
been driving and walking as well, so he has walked a very long way too. (Possibly about
3/4 of the distance.)
My wonderful daughters and their spouses,
Emma and Luke,
Amelia and Jarrod,
for all their support and encouragement. Amelia was a fantastic help when Chris was unable
to drive one weekend because of another commitment.
both joined in with walking as photos will attest.
joined us when she could and young
joined in this year too. They both did fantastically, especially on the last day when
they both walked 14km!!!. The family also turned out in force to help sell flowers at
Victor Harbour for which I am very grateful. Besides, we had great fun. Word of advice, if
you are going around selling flowers, have three cute 5 & 6yr old boys help you. It makes a
HUGE difference!! ;-)
who walked with me for a week last year, then two days again this year, as well as
helping sell roses, has been so very supportive and continuously thinking of ways we can
increase our fundraising. He has done that this year with his 'red laces' round at the
junior football he coaches. Craig has been encouraging when I have felt rather overwhelmed
by what needed to be done. His wife
has been quietly helping too. Their son
(6), was my third little helper selling Roses. Thank you all so very much, I wish you
Craig's dad, who took over the distribution of my posters and fliers in Victor Harbour when
I was really getting behind. He did a much better job of it than I could have done.

Sandy De Lane,
Val and Graham Roberts
(who not only walked for 2 days each but also fed us dinner on one of those days!) and
You all helped more than you can know in making the distance seem so much shorter. Apart
from Nicky, I have met all of the other people through the CFSA ‘Grandparents Day’ which
helps to show the value of this support network. We all want to do what we can for our
beloved children and grandchildren.
