Ligare Book Sprinters attempt 100km walk

Ligare account manager Bev Thompson and her three teammates will walk from Palm Beach on Sydney’s northern tip to Coogee in the city’s Eastern Suburbs to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

“It’s non-stop,” she said.

“There will be no camping or anything like that, we are allowed to stop at three check points to change our sweaty clothes or put band-aids on our blisters.”

Thompson known as “Captain Bev” will be joined by Ligare’s “First Mate” Lisa Vogtmann, “Medical Officer” Dave Moroney and “Coach” Debbi Heniker.

The group is aiming to raise at least $2000 before the March event, which is organised through the Wild Women on Top organisation.

The Ligare Book Sprinters are already in intense training mode, going on weekly treks as well as partaking in individual conditioning.

“Failure to complete is not an option,” added Thompson.

“We all have to finish so we will be dragging the injured to the line. We are aiming to complete the walk in around 25 hours.”
