My Updates

Am I really doing this?

This may be why I have a small, tight circle of friends… and why I may be put on performance review at work 😳 …my friends and close colleagues become involved in the crazy activities I have been registering in recently - but all for a good cause ❤️‍🩹 Last year a group of 7 of us jumped from a plane for the very first time (adult diapers were part of the preparation pack 😬) and then there was The Greatest Shave 🪒 I didn’t expect anyone else to shave their head.. but it’s very liberating 🙆🏼‍♀️

This year 4 of us will be participating in the Kokoda Challenge a 96KM hike 😳😬 over 39 hours 😩 donations are to a great cause to run youth programs that inspire them to do extraordinary things. Through hiking endurance events, youth programs and an outdoor education camp they are provided with opportunities for growth ❤️

This event will provide so many challenges for the team. Honestly… it’s not going to be pretty, I’m expecting that we will all experience some level of pain akin to going to hell 🔥🔥🔥 I think there will be tears 😭 😭😭it will get dirty and I’m pretty sure I’m going to come back minus  a couple of toenails 🤢 I may even complete the course on my knees as I crawl toward the finish line, and I will be questioning my sanity - in fact the sanity of the others as to why they even signed up with me 😆

So here goes 🤞🏻

I welcome any words of encouragement for the team, and if you would like to join the challenge and enrich the lives of the children that participate in the program, the link can be accessed in my bio 🫶🏻

Thanks heaps for your support ❤️
