Walk­ing for Telethon


Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

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.
