It was great to be part of the welcome home team at the Opera House this morning for Craig Goozee, friend and Avalon Beach SLSC member this morning, who is raising money for children’s cancer research under the a2b4c banner… http://www.a2b4c.com.au/
He is amazing. He’s cycled, run, paddled 12,500 kilometres around Australia in 92 days! Check out the pics on his daily blog…
Know of anyone else who’s done anything that comes close to that?? He looked as fit as a fiddle…not even puffing. This is his third and last trip. We followed his first trip up the coast in 1998 and reported his daily progress on realsurf… itself worth a re-read on the a2b4c site (‘about a2b4c’).
As well as all that the physical effort, all along the way he’s given talks to raise donations. Who would have the energy to do that??
You can still donate here, to this worthy cause…
