Heather Lee reached her 100,000 step mile­stone with hours to spare at the Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life at the week­end.

THE RE­MARK­ABLE 91-YEAR-OLD REACHED HER GOAL JUST BE­FORE 7am and then did a few more steps as fel­low walk­ers rushed to have their pho­tos taken with her and her walk­ing part­ner Liz de Vries. Lisa Hen­der­son and Sarah Mor­gan both coaches at Curves North Rich­mond also hit the 100,000 steps goal just af­ter Heather.

Hawkes­bury Re­lay Chair­woman, Re­becca Talk said it was a won­der­ful com­mu­nity event with about 400 par­tic­i­pants dur­ing the day. The event raised close to $40,000. Hawkes­bury Re­lay For Life is now just $14,000 short of rais­ing $1.5mil­lion over 15 years for the Can­cer Coun­cil.Heather said she slept well on Sun­day night and was out shop­ping on Mon­day.

She is now plan­ning her next chal­lenge, the 3km, 5km and 10km race walks at the Pan Pa­cific Masters Games in No­vem­ber on the Gold Coast, just be­fore her 92nd birth­day.
