Nine Gallagher stalwarts spent 2 solid days hiking the Goldfields Track and Hepburn Springs area in Daylesford outside of Melbourne and raised a $3000 contribution to the Jodi Lee Foundation for bowel cancer prevention.
The 2019 trek commemorated Catherine ‘Riney’ Ross whose Research4Riney campaign raised more than $250,000 for bowel cancer research before she succumbed to the disease.
Our intrepid trekkers set off on Friday 6 September and slogged a solid 7 hours a day through scenic bushland, finishing up on the evening of the 7th after completing what is described as an endurance event.
The team comprised Emma Keegan, Brendon Kropp, Eddie Lim, James McHarg, Emma O’Meara, Ben Robinson, Hamish Smyth, Jane Sullivan and James Walker, who all received medals for going the distance and finishing the trek.
“We all found it very tough both physically and mentally,” says James, “but also incredibly rewarding. We were proud to be supporting bowel cancer awareness and prevention.”
It’s not too late to help the team out by donating to boost their fundraising efforts by clicking on the link. It’s these activities that really show the Gallagher Way in action and our commitment to helping other people in the communities where we operate.
Well done, guys!
