Homecoming

The morning of 4 August 2012 I got up to strap my feet and get ready for the last time. I was walking home!! At half past 8 I met the run walk for life from Oudtshoorn’s people by the turn-off to Chandelier to take on my last walk with me. on the bed I had my grand daughter. I had traffic escort all the way.

As Oudtshoorn came closer I got butterflies in my tummy and a lump in my throat, I did it!!

Just outside the biker club of Oudtshoorn joined to escort me home as I came closer to reaching my end destination the group of people walking with grew. I arrived at Brian’s Grill with a bang.  Their was survivors walking with, a band and drum majorettes. The tv welcomed me back home and all my family and friends was there. It was very emotional and touching to see all the people that supported me all the way.

Thank you to all the sponsors to making the day a succes and the sponsors that sponsored through out the trip.

That evening there was a dinner with a slideshow at Brians Grill. Thank you to each and everyone that paid R100 to be there. It was a great evening.
