Why I am supporting Channel 7 Telethon Trust

My Story

Hi, I'm Scott and I'm 13 yers old. In 2020 I will walk my 11th Great Walk for Telethon and complete my 4th 50km Treadmill Challenge. Back in 2010 when I was 4 years old I learnt about helping others in Kindy and it got me thinking.... I decided I wanted to help sick kids and babies and the hardest thing I could think of to raise money was to walk the 25km from my farm to town. It took me asking every morning for 2 and a half weeks "can I please walk to town today?" for me to convince my Mum and Dad to let me try. I surprised everyone when I made it in 8 hours and I knew I would keep walking every year! I walked 25km at 5 and 6, 41km at 7 and full 42.195km Marathons at 8, 9 ,10, 11, 12 and 13. I've also hike 82km up and down a mountain in Canada and completed 3x 50km Treadmill Challenges. My little brother Damien walked the Marathon with me in 2016, he was 7 years old. Damien found it really hard and it took 12 hours and 30 minutes, I'm so proud of him because he never gave up!. Damien decided that he did not like long distance walking and he would ride his push bike out the front setting the pace for future Marathons. On Monday the 1st of June 2020 (WA Day) will be my 11th Walk down the Koolyanobbing Road to the Southern Cross Oval and it is my 7th Marathon. Damien will ride his bike out the front setting the pace for the 4th time. Thanks to the help of the community around me we have raised $176,000 for Telethon since 2010 and I am hoping in 2020 we can make it to $200,000!! I am really hoping that you can once again support me so we can raise more money for this great cause!! Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated! In October over the Telethon Weekend I will also be completing me 4th 50km Treadmill Challenge (where I will walk 50km on the Saturday and 30km on the Sunday). I also have my book 'Did You know, You can Change the World?' for sale on my website www.scottsgreatwalk.com as well as Telethon's website. It is about helping others and my walking journey and the $20 goes to Telethon!! My motto is "it's easy to make a difference, what can you do?" I'm hoping you can help me to help Telethon and the sick kids and babies of WA! Thank you. My walk is dedicated in loving memory to my little cousin, Joel.
