Scott's Story . . .
Scott’s journey began in 2010 at 4 years old when he learnt about fundraising at kindy. He decided he wanted to help sick babies. Scott walked for 8 hours from his farm into the town centre to raise an impressive $3,098.40 for Telethon.
In 2011 Scott walked again. He took 48,443 steps and battled on in freezing cold weather. He never gave up and finished in 8 hours. After the walk, Scott announced his retirement.
After having plenty of time to thaw out and rest his legs Scott decided to come out of retirement.
For the third year in a row, little Scott set off on his big walk to raise money for Telethon. He battled on in the cold and rain to finish in a record time of 7.5 hours and was surprised at the end with a cheque for $5,000 from Cliffs to go towards his total. He raised more than $18,000 for Telethon 2012, and more than $26,000 over the past three years. . . Great effort, Scott!
Scott is already talking about this year’s walk – what a hero!
