I started the trek with approximately $3,500 raised for Variety. This saw me earn the bronze level sticker. By day two, I was sitting at $4,250 raised. By the end of day six, I had made it to a silver level fundraiser with an amazing $7,200 raised!! This made me so happy as it saw me enter the top 10 fundraisers for the trek (I finished off at number 8). But what’s more exciting is that the whole trek raised a whopping $380,000 for Variety Children’s Charity!! So to all of you who donated, I thank you so much.
Will I do the trek again? Absolutely! Only crazy people do the Jet Trek, and if I am still crazy in 2019, then I will be here with my jet ski. Besides, I have seen the meaningful work that Variety do and know how much they help children in need. If I can help them in any way to continue this phenomenal work, I will.
Finally, I need to say big thank you to all my sponsors, DentalCareXtra, KIDS Mackay, MAICON, CFMEU Moranbah North Lodge, Moranbah Community Workers Club, Blackbird Performing Arts, Bulletproof, Workplace Safety and Development Solutions, 96.9 4RFM Radio, SmartStay Villages, QCWA, TCS Hair & Beauty, Hornery Group of Companies, The Roast Shack, Create a Sign, and Greatest Version Strength. Without your support, the trek would not have been possible. So, I am forever grateful for your backing.
Next year’s event will be taking place in sunny (hopefully) Queensland. We will be trekking from Bundaberg to Hamilton Island, so I am looking forward to this even more as it is in my backyard! For more information on Yamaha Variety Jet Trek, please visit the Variety website.
Thanks again for your support!
