Alice Springs Departure Function

April 3, 2009
What a terrific day. There were lots of people at the council lawns to see the camels and take photos.
Bendigo Bank were just terrific and the staff of the bank raised close to $400 in half an hour. Thank you to all who were at the function and especially to Mayor Damion Ryan and the Alice Springs Council for their support.
The walk along the Todd was terrific with many people driving past taking photos of the camels in their decorations and the actual walk through the Gap was terrific with a count of 64 people walking through the Gap at the same time sets an unofficial record of the number of people walking through the Gap at the same time.
The route takes us from Alice Springs to Finke and then Oodnadatta being our next towns along the way to reaching the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne on the 22/11/09.
Thank you Alice Springs and all of the folk who have made donations via their local Bendigo Bank, the website and directly to the Children First Foundation. Keep it coming and lets get to the $100,000 target to help Moira and the foundation save children’s lives.
Take care and hopefully see you all on the route somewhere.
