We had the pleasure of handing over a “BIG CHEQUE” for $240,000 to The Starlight Children’s Foundation representative – KT – on Monday 23 October. That marks the end of the 2017 Trek! Thanks to the trekkers who came to Newcastle – to the John Hunter Hospital – Starlight Express Room for the presentation.
And so on to 2018!
Fatty has already put in some work to plan out where the 2018 Trek is going – starting on Port Macquarie, going through Tamworth, Tenterfield, Toowoomba, Narrabri (or Moree), Dubbo, and finishing in Goulburn. This will be from 18 August to 25 August 2018.
Fatty has set a challenge – he will shout beers for the person who comes up with the best NAME and THEME for the Trek!
You can now put in your nominations for the 2018 Trek – just fill in the ‘signup’ form on the tab above and pay your $500 deposit to secure a place in the Trek. Make sure you include your preferred car number. I have already had a few inquiries from people wanting to come next year, so first in – best dressed.
Please note that we have changed the bank account. We are now banking with the ANZ Bank. The new numbers are at the bottom of the page.
With this year’s donation, we have now given The Starlight Children’s Foundation a grand total of $1,840,000. How far above the $2 million mark can we get this year?
We will be having a get-together – called our REUNION TREK – at Goulburn, on 10 March 2018. Any new trekker should try to get along to that – it gives you a good opportunity to see what trekking is all about. See you there!
