My Message

Hello, I'm doing my thing to support Cancer Council NSW on their mission to defeat cancer. Earlier this year in March 2013 my father (Step Dad) passed away after a courageous 3 year fight with Cancer. I was by his side as he fought hard and stubbornly to defeat this disease that was slowly taking him away from all his loved ones. During this time I decided I wanted to do something different and difficult that could contribute towards the Cancer Council with their goal of one day finding a cure. I'm Steve Quirk, I will be walking across Australia and back again from Wollongong NSW to Fremantle WA and back again. I will be joined by Garry Jones who will be supporting me with a support vehicle towing a caravan as I aim to be the first person to walk across Australia and back. The walk is estimated to take 5-6 months, walking at least 50klms per day and covering a total distance of approx. 8,000klms. This walk will begin on 10 January 2014. This walk will certainly be physically and mentally demanding, although it is nothing compared with what those suffering from Cancer endure on a daily basis and what their family and friends encounter along with them. Hopefully this event may inspire other people to participate in other fundraising events for the Cancer Council or even create an event through the “Do Your Thing”. The aim of this event is to raise funds and awareness for the Cancer Council in areas such as: Research Towards a Cure, Education on Reducing Risks and Support for those Affected by Cancer. A special thanks to family and friends that have been supportive of me during the lead up to this event, including people that I do not know who have contacted me to offer support. It has all been very much appreciated. You can follow Garry and I during our event on Facebook - "one step at a time for a cure" and click Like.

Every night when I watch the weather report, I think about how you are both bravely facing the extreme heat on your fund-raising journey! Steve, you must be Superman walking in those temperatures! Gary, negotiating all the support single-handedly day after day must be really challenging. Amazing effort both of you!!!
