Seven Bridges Walk

  
Good Day, Beautiful People! 

October is flying too fast for me. Work front is demanding and not forgetting all the commitments and social engagements. Too many things to do and have enough time for everything as usual.

Here October we try to create all cancer awareness, especially pink ribbon. Some call me crazy to sign up for 27km, seven bridges walk for Cancer Council. I never walked that kind of distance before. It was my very first try.  Last year I did city to surf which 14km run for those who already following me  last year knew this. There are a few reasons why I do this walk. It is my personal healing journey, to raise awareness, fundraising, in rememberance of loved ones who fought cancer and migrated to heaven and friends that went through cancer hell and back. Some still awaiting for God’s miracle for their lives.

Every time, I sign up for something tremendous or enormous, something will play up or the enemy will try to create a havoc in order to get you. A bit anxious since I signed up, my body was not 100% again. I had bad hayfever, sinusitis and allergy itchy cough. Normally, I’m a person who love to embrace change, a challenge and try new things. Life is too short to do the same old things.

Well, I’m determined to finish the daunting 27km long walk. I prepared my heart and body for the big day, 25th October 2015.  This fundraiser event is hosted by Cancer Council NSW yearly to raise money for research and create awareness for different cancers. They’re celebrating 10th anniversary for seven bridges walk this year which is pretty special. 

Some of the word I meditate:

I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. – Phil4:13

Be strong and courageous. – Deut31:6

I will never leave you nor forsake you. – Heb13:5

For nothing is impossible with God. – Lk1:37 

The fact about long walk is not only great to train your mind, body and spirit to the next level of good positive thinking, endurance, perseverance, determination, attitude of “DONT GIVE UP!”and toughen your body. It also helps you to clear your mind of all the garbage, detox your mind and focus on the things that really matter.

So pleased to let you know I did it and complete it with my walking buddy and a few other friends. There is a will, there is a way!  By the way, age is not the limit. As I have witnessed kids as young as seven and silver hair seniors in their seventies or eighties doing it and complete the walk.  Not forgetting,  moms and bubs with prams and people who are physically challenged who managed to do this walk! 

I proud to show you some photos I’ve taken on the walk.

Today, I’m sharing something close to my heart. Is hard not to get involve in whatever way for this cause as I lost a few loved ones, friends and pastors through different cancers over the years. As believers, we can bring faith, hope, love, joy and practical help into every situation. “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” -Edward Everett Hale. We can’t do everything but together we can all do something.

It is not too late to get involved, attend or host a McGrath Foundation or cancer council pink ribbon day fundraiser, a morning tea, a girls’ night in or an event to create breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers awareness. Fundraising to bring medical research, contributing vital support and prevention programmes. You can do it small or big, at your own home, your workplace, school, church and local community event. Everyday, 50 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers in Australia. Pretty sure is not a small number around the globe. I dare says, we all know someone in our circle (self, family, friends, neighbours, school moms or colleagues) who are diagnosed.

Spread love and kindness in your circle or even outside your circle, pray for the sick and family, visit the sick, make a meal, send flowers, a card of encouragement, call or message them to show you care. For those who follow earlier and remember one of my beautiful and brave friend, Nezz, is an overcomer. She is in remission and currently pregnant! Praise God!
