2012 Adelaide Walk

Monday, 19 November 2012 Posted in Past Events, 2012

On Sunday morning the 18th November, we held our first walk in South Australia beside the iconic Grange Jetty in Adelaide!

The weather was perfect, the location was beautiful and the outpouring of support for our inaugural event was incredible. Thanks to each and everyone of the 192 people registered for the event, gross takings to date are $9,600 with further donations expected in the coming weeks.

Channel 9 and Triple M Presenter Andrew “Cosi” Costello MC’ed the event and Port Adelaide AFL Players Jaspar Pittard and Andrew Moore lent their support too.
