Freo to Leederville walk is a sure thing
WHAT started as a friendly wager between two western suburbs businessmen is set to culminate in a tutu-clad walk of shame across Perth, all in the name of charity.
In October last year, Psaros chief executive and West Coast Eagles sponsor Danny Psaros accepted the challenge, which was set down by fellow football fanatic Resolute Finance principal Alan Pavisich.
The bet hinged on whether the Eagles would make the AFL finals; the loser agreeing to don a red tutu and walk from Fremantle to West Leederville.
With the Eagles having secured a place in the finals, Mr Pavisich’s attire for the 20km walk has been confirmed.
Mr Psaros, who will walk alongside, said the challenge originated as a friendly bet but had taken on a more significant purpose.
“We agreed this was a good opportunity to raise money for Redkite, so we’re encouraging as many people as possible to give generously,” he said.
Mr Pavisich, who is the WA president of Redkite, said the cause was particularly close to his heart, as his 10-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia when she was 10 months old.
“Redkite does an amazing job supporting children and young adults with cancer throughout their whole journey by providing everything from financial assistance, counselling, emotional and educational support. Every dollar donated helps a child and their family going through the cancer journey.”
