Day 25: The Dumplings made it!

Wow! Remember my post from yesterday? Well, I’m happy to so that after almost 31 hours of walking, hubby and his mates, in a team called The Dumplings, completed the Oxfam Trailwalker today!

Starting yesterday at Parsley Bay in Brooklyn (just north of Sydney) and finishing at just before 2pm at Georges Heights Oval (right near where hubby and I got married) in Mosman, the boys walked across the finish line. The Dumplings came in at 241 out of 543 teams and raised $6,375 in sponsorship…amazing effort! There were a few blisters, sore feet and very tired eyes but overall spirits were great, and nobody was broken. Well done boys, we are all so proud of you!

A quick collage of pics from the day, and some individual pics taken with my iPhone during the night and at the finish….

The all important 2am checkpoint!

St Ives Showground at 2am…never thought I would be here at this time of day!
