June Tells Cancer to Take a Hike
On the 16th of October, June walked ANZAC Hill in Alice Springs to raise over $4,500 (and counting) for Mummy’s Wish as part of the #MummysWishhike campaign.
The hike was in memory of her eldest daughter, Annette Azzopardi (27/10/1979 – 12/03/2019), who was born and raised in Alice Springs until she was 20 years old. Mummy’s Wish Mum, Annette, raised over $7,000 for Mummy’s Wish before her ovarian cancer returned and she passed away in early 2019. You can read Annette’s story here.
“I love Annette more than words can describe and I miss her dearly. By hiking ANZAC Hill, I can share Annette’s story, courage and strength with the Alice Springs community and create more memories of my wonderful daughter even though she can’t be here to walk with me anymore.”
June did an incredible job raising awareness and much-needed funds for Mummy’s Wish. She went from doing zero physical activity to walking the hill every day leading up to the big event, handing out flyers and talking to anyone she could to spread the word.
Many members of the community joined her on the day. She even landed a feature on ABD Radio Alice Springs!
Special thanks go to The Roaming Barista. The coffee van set up at the top of the hill during the day to sell coffees, generously donating all proceeds from drinks sold to Mummy’s Wish.
