Raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

Sisters walk for important cause

 

TWO-DAY WALK: Linda and Heather Christison walked for 48 hours recently to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Linda and Heather Christison walked in the Canberra 48 Hour Race to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

The two-day walk was held at the Australian Institute of Sport from March 17 to 19.

Linda and Heather walked 550 laps of the AIS Track & Field Facility, which totalled a huge 236.703 kilometers.

The sisters came away with outstanding results, beating runners to come in at third place in the women’s section.

“We were very pleased with our efforts and a bit shocked out how well we did,” Linda said.

“Heather and I had a huge goal of walking 240kms and we almost did that which was great.”

The two women completed the walk in memory of their father, who died in 2011 after a seven year fight with prostate cancer.

Prior to the walk, the sisters set up a fundraising page to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and have managed to raise more than $2000 so far.
