After several days of hard challenging terrain, day 19 consisted of a mostly flat and scenic walk along the Great Alpine Road. Senior command and local representatives joined us for today’s leg, starting just outside of Bright.
We passed the 400km milestone early in the day, which provided extra motivation for the walking group. The Bright police station welcomed us into town by hosting a function at their brand new station. It felt like the entire Bright P-12 College turned us too, with heaps of children waving the Head to Head flags. A special thanks need to go out to the Rotary Club of Bright, who made a generous donation this afternoon to our fundraising effort.
It was also great to meet the local member and check out their terrific new station. We are getting very close to our goal of reaching $500,000 for veterans network. With people continually stopping us during the walk to contribute to the cause.
We finished today by walking the rail trail through to Porepunkah, leaving us now with just under 80km remaining in this leg of the Head to Head walk. Day 20 will start along the Great Alpine Road and will see us walk into Myrtleford.
