This week’s Redcliffe & Bayside Herald newspaper featured a follow-up article about Vividus Team Member Melissa and her participation in the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker Brisbane 2016 fundraising event.
Melissa’s team have raised $7,520 which places them in the top 5 fundraisers in Brisbane! A huge thanks to everyone who supported through donations and messages of encouragement.
The team started strongly and were on track to complete the event in about 20hours until injury illness struck two of the team members about 65km into the event. While this blew out their time to 27hrs 57min, they stuck together and finished as a team (less than half of all teams have all members finish the event). And still managed to finish 27 of 73 in the mixed gender category and 57 of 139 overall. Amazingly Melissa was only ‘a bit tight’ the next day and was able to easily tackle the stairs at both home and the office the next day!
