Northern NSW : Rescue Spring 2017
Lighthouse 2 Skillion Sunday, 30 July 1,168 walkers signed up for this year’s Lighthouse 2 Skillion walk. The 27.5km trek along the Central Coast from Norah Head Lighthouse to The Skillion at Terrigal included sections where only way out was via walking... or an airlift. The day raised $5000 and was generously supported by McLachlan Partners, Aubrey Brown Lawyers, East Gosford Podiatry, Splash Restaurant, 6S Health, Fortunity, Mingara One Fitness, Six String Brewing Company, Hot Chilli Source and Shop Naturally, as well as minor sponsors and all the surf clubs on the Central Coast. It’s been a huge few months for walking enthusiasts who turned out in their thousands to support three major fundraising events for the Rescue Helicopter. Coffs Coast Charity Walk Sunday, 18 June 2017 Following last year’s damaging east coast low that severely damaged the track, the Coffs Coast Charity Walk was successfully relaunched in June. Torrential rain during the lead-up made preparations tough for the event crew, however, forecast sunshine in the early hours of Sunday morning revealed a star-filled clear sky followed by a spectacular sunrise. Meeting at Moonee beach, 350 walkers took on either the 14 or 21km route that followed the Solitary Island walking trail revealing the rugged and breathtaking Coffs coastline.

Now in its sixth year, the popular 35km event attracted participants from Brisbane and the Gold Coast and even as far as Adelaide. Spectacular scenery along the route included Cape Byron Lighthouse, long stretches of pristine coast, rainforest tracks, Lennox headland and the final push along the beaches leading in to Ballina. Walkers praised the support crew who looked after participants every step of the way. More than 50 volunteers assisted at water and fruit stations and their smiles and encouragement were highly appreciated and praised by participants. Thanks to Trip A Deal for sponsoring the Coffs Coast Charity Walk and Byron Bay to Ballina Coastal Charity Walk. 20 Rescue Magazine SPRING 2017
