Sneaker Pimps

The Long Walk!

On Sunday 13th September, the Sneaker Pimps walked. In the sunshine. For a really long time!

We started at our local park, and walked a course that took us into the city, around the bridges, along Mounts Bay Road, through the suburbs and back home...well, close to home anyway! 

It was a rather warm day, and we made sure we had plenty of stops along the way to refill water bottles, refuel, and re-apply sunscreen! (Thank you Perkins for the handy travel packs!).  Having 11 people on our team meant there was always someone to walk with to help with motivation as we chatted and giggled our way through the 36kms.

We had a few cheerleaders surprise us along the way, and a special guest join us for the last 10kms - shoutout to Tracey, a walker from previous years, who swooped in with fresh legs and big smiles for the final push to our finish line!

We are so proud of our efforts for the this very important cause, and so glad that we achieved such a great result in our walk and our fundraising!

Best of luck to all the other teams doing their walks!

Our Big Walk!

The change of dates was slightly tricky for our team so we set a date that worked for us all and The Sneaker Pimps are off on our 35km journey tomorrow! A perfect day is forecast (if a little warm!) for us to walk and chat! The course we mapped takes us from home, into the city and around the bridges, then along the river and through the suburbs to home...well, actually it takes us to our lunch destination! 

We are proud of our efforts in fundraising this year, and can't wait to cross our own finish line :)

Wish us luck!

The Sneaker Pimps are ready to Rumble!

>>>Please note this event is cash only<<<

 

This is our first year walking, our first time fundraising and our first attempt at organising this kind of event! Wish us Luck!

We're participating for...

The Sneaker Pimps

Our team, the Sneaker Pimps, has commtitted to joining the Hawaiian Walk for Women's Cancer to help raise funds for this important cause. We are following in the (many!) footsteps of out team member Sandra Back, who is doing the walk for the 3rd year in a row!

Our team is made up of 12 women. Some who have been personally affected by cancer, and others who are there to support.

We are lucky...the village that surrounds us is a strong one. We know that we can make it even stronger with the support we show each other. Spending time together, walking and talking, sharing our stories, listening. Supporting each other in these ways - as women, as friends, as mothers - is invaluable. It's the glue that holds our village together. By raising funds for continuing research into women's cancer, we are adding to that strength. More research leads to better outcomes for us all. For us as women, for our girls, for the whole village, and beyond.

 

We are walking for each other.

We are walking for those we have lost.

We are walking for the women who are fighting their battle.

We are walking for those who have won.

 

Thank you to our Sponsors
