Warren (Waz) Edwards surprised himself and was overwhelmed by the community support helping him to smash both his targets taking part in The Long Run.
The fund raising and awareness event for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) went for the duration of September and Warren ended up raising over $6,200 and walking just over 400km.
He has been blown away by the support and generosity of his supporters ranking him in the top 10 fundraisers across Australia. “I wanted to make a real difference, the support was awesome and I was determined to go the distance for this important cause,” he said thanking everyone who contributed with a special mention to his past work colleagues, members of the dragon boat community, the Parkes Action Club and the Parkes Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness Group.
From aiming to raise $500 and conquering 150km, Warren’s final results were beyond expectation. “I wanted to walk from Parkes to Parramatta where I worked for many years of my career. I ended up walk- ing to Bondi and then some so I am very pleased with the result.”
Donations can still be made until mid-October. www.thelongrun.org.au/fundraisers/warrenedwards
