Four-thousand-five-hundred kilometres is a long way to travel even if you’re in a car, but imagine doing it on foot and pushing a trolley that weighed almost as much as you do.
Sue Wellington is doing just that for her ‘Road to Remember’ walk from Melbourne to her home in Geraldton all to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.
She set off on April 23 and stopped over in Murray Bridge on Wednesday for a two night rest.
“I’ll head to Callington next, where a friend of mine will take me over the Adelaide Hills and into the city,” she said.
“I feel like I’m cheating being driven into Adelaide, but I have to do the safest thing. Travelling through the Hills be too dangerous.”
Sue said she’d had a few slight traffic shaves, but support from the majority of people has overwhelmed her.
She still has over 3,000 kilometres to go, and is expecting to finish in October.
