Walking for life and a good cause

Regular readers of Black and Blue Man may recall my amazing encounter on 25 January 2014 when, during my Hornsby-Artarmon walk, I met the father-son team Jay and Luke Hawkins during their spectacular interstate walk from Victoria to Queensland’s Gold Coast (see above link).

Recently, Jay announced that in August he and his oldest son Jake will embark on another epic journey to keep spreading the word about R U OK?.

This time, as illustrated in Jay’s map above, they’ll be cycling from City Beach in Western Australia to Rye in Victoria.

That’s a distance of 3500 kilometres (almost 2175 miles).

And they are planning to do it in 17 days.

Jay and Jake are using the same fundraising site and Facebook page that they used for Walk For Life 2014.

Jay and Jake, all the very best with your preparations to 12 August, and stay well and take care 🙂
