Josh - Hundred Hole Hike

Josh in action in the Hundred Hole Hike at Thirteenth Beach

Our thanks this week go to one of our newest supporters, Josh Fisher, who took part in the gruelling Hundred Hole Hike in support of the JMB Foundation and Karingal in January.  We’re pleased to report that Josh survived a long hard day on the golf course at Thirteenth Beach, completing an incredible 117 holes in total – that’s six and a half  rounds!

Josh teed off at 5:55am and after playing 575 shots,  finished up at 8:30pm.  He reported that his best round was the third (83) and his not-so-best was the fifth (92).  We’re not surprised to hear that by the time all this was over, Josh’s legs were feeling a bit worn out, and he says he had something of a struggle with walking for the next day or two.

 

Overall, Josh has declared the event well organised and thoroughly enjoyable, despite the effort it took to get through it.

And we declare it a outstanding success, not least because Josh managed to raise more than $1300 by participating, thanks to his generous sponsors.  Those funds have been split down the middle between JMB and Karingal, and we are truly grateful for this contribution.  It will go towards helping a young Australian with an ABI, and it will make a genuine difference to that young person’s care, comfort and quality of life.

Our thanks to Josh and all those who supported him.  Well done.
