Day 1 of my ‘Month Without Heels’

My first pair of flat shoes especially purchased for Charles (NT Divisional Advisory Board Chair) who will sponsor me if wore a pair of thongs ... tongue-out

Raring to go for Red Cross Calling ... the countdown is on....

Shoes in place and ready to start the ‘month without heels’ challenge to raise funds for Australian Red Cross.surprised

Red Cross called, and I answered.

When Red Cross calls, Australia answers. Every year, Red Cross Calling brings people together to support those in our community and further afield who have fallen on tough times. This March, I’ll be answering the call and getting involved in Red Cross Calling to raise funds to help people overcome crisis across Australia and overseas.

My Red Cross Calling Challenge is to 'go without heels for a month', and for those that know me, you will understand that this is not an easy 'feet'...

I have been 'In Training' for a month now wearing flat shoes, so hoping the feet and legs can handle the Challenge?

Hope you will support me to raise funds through this challenge.

Thank you to my Sponsors
