Where does your donation go?​

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 $231 million 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 2021?

This year I am 15 years old and I will be completing my 12th Great Walk for Telethon / 8th Marathon on the 7th of June (WA Day).

It will be a milestone for my brother Damien, as it will be his 5th year setting the pace out the front on his bike.

Every year it gets harder for me because I try to beat my time from the year before and also because I know how painful the Marathon is going to be both physically and mentally.

This year I am hoping to make it to the finish line in under 6 hours and beat last years time of 6 hours and 38 minutes. 

I will also be completing my 5th 50km Treadmill Challenge in October on the Telethon Weekend (where I will complete 50km one day and 50km the next, totally 100km for the weekend, up from the 90km total I completed last year).

At the moment we're $12,723.91 away from raising a total of $200,000 for Telethon since 2010.

As much as I'd love for us to get to that $200,000 goal I know that it might be a tough ask this year because even though we've been pretty lucky over here in WA there are still a lot of people that are struggling due to the ongoing pandemic.

Every dollar and cent counts towards helping 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.

 

Many Thanks,

Scott Guerini
