  1. Dear June

    I remember the sparkle of determination in your eye when you told me of your intention to walk from Cairns to Gladstone. And its funny because my reaction was an immediate thought about the impact that this was going to have..there was no thought whatsoever about the reality of the task ahead..I simply knew that you would do it. Anyone else I may have asked the question : Are you ready, are you prepared…thats a serious undertaking. But with you I just knew that it was a done deal.

    And here you are , many kilometres behind you and you have carried out a part of the goal. The rest of the goal and the achievement is ongoing. Your walk is not fixed in time. It stands as a shining example of what any one single person, group or gathering can achieve. The awareness and impact of this effort will continue to inspire others for decades to come.

    As much as I had wanted to be there along the way, the timing just didnt work out but that is not of consequence. I have been talking about you and what you represent and will continue to share your effort and example long into the future.

    For your spirit, effort, inspiration and your genuine community strength and building I am grateful
    and indeed I look forward to sharing your stories again in person sometime soon.

    In admiration

Well Done, to all the key people involved in the planning and organising of the walk between Cairns and Sarina, also to Nic, Rosalie and Glenda the longest walking individuals who supported June through their commitment to creating awareness of the need to protect the Great Barrier Reef.
