Four men set out on a journey with the challenge of completing a 100km walk within the constraints of twenty four hours. Raising money for The Motor Neurone Disease Association of Western Australia (MNDAWA), they trekked on foot averaging 4.7km an hour.

They had the support of friends and family along the way and not even the blistering sun, wild Kangaroos, bulging blisters, or deranged criminals on the run could stop these men on their journey.  From 7am Saturday morning until 4am the next day they successfully complete their task in record time.

Part of the walking team are members of  the Ups ‘n’ Downers Square Dance club who are all helping to raise money for the MNDAWA.

Loved ones say goodbye as they fear they may not return alive

On the Brookon Hwy, Western Australia

They solider on like Rock Balboa in Rocky V

Throw away your Nike's, these will do

At the halfway mark, only 50kms to go

There's no looking back, it's too dark...

Mission accomplished!
