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.
