The Channel 7 Telethon Trust is a West Australian based, registered charitable trust that has a philosophy to financially support the medical and social welfare of children and young people, and to fund research into children's diseases.
Since the first Telethon on Channel 7 on November 29 1968, Telethon has raised over $457 million dollars and provided much needed financial assistance to over 150 organisations including children's hospitals and research/medical facilities in Western Australia.
What is Scott's aim for 2022?
This year I am 16 years old and I will be completing my 13th Great Walk for Telethon / 9th Marathon on the 7th of July.
It's a little later in the year than I usually walk because I have to get through my Year 11 ATAR Exams first!
It will be the 6th year my little brother Damien sets the pace out the front on his bike.
Last year was my 5th 50km Treadmill Challenge. My goal over the last 5 years was to build up to walking
50km on the Saturday and 50km on the Sunday of the Telethon Weekend and last year I completed that goal.
I'm unsure what my Treadmill Challenge will look like this year and I am taking some time to think about it.
Last year we reached $200,000 raised for Telethon since 2010.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of that total! Without you, the community around me, it wouldn't have happened.
With the ongoing uncertainty, rising prices and the pandemic I know people are finding it tough right now.
No matter how big or small, every dollar and cent helps to make a difference to the lives of the sick kids and babies of WA
and I am so grateful for any help I get along the way towards my total.
I greatly appreciate any amount that you might be able to give.
Thank you for your continued support, I couldn't do it without you.
