Walking for Telethon
SCOTT AIMS TO RAISE $50,000 FOR CHARITY
ELEVEN-year-old Scott Guerini has already walked three marathon distances and written a book, Did you know you can change the world?
Preparing for his fourth marathon walk this July, the Alkimos boy hopes it and the book sales will raise $50,000.
The money will go to other children as part of the St Simon Peter Catholic Primary School Year 6 student’s annual fundraiser, Scott’s Great Walk for Telethon.
“He will walk his fourth marathon in July and in celebration of the 50th Telethon he will walk 50km on the Telethon Weekend – he’s aiming to raise $50,000,” his mother Nicole said.
“As part of his fundraising this year Scott has written and illustrated a book which he will sell to raise money for Telethon.
“It’s about how we are all different, we can do little things every day to make a difference and we can also do some big things as well, and then it tells his story.”
Scott first did a 25km walk d469088 from his family farm to Southern Cross when he was four to “help sick kids and babies” and has increased his efforts year on year.
