IT all started when Bright women Natalie Kelly and Lynne Sgambelloni decided in February to take part in the BCNA’s Great Wall of China Trek.
Both women had been touched by breast cancer, with Mrs Kelly’s aunt passing away from the disease and Mrs Sgambelloni surviving breast cancer.
And that idea has since raised almost $30,000 for the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
To be able to trek the 42kms along the Great Wall of China, both women had to raise $3500 each for the BCNA, and Mrs Kelly said she had no idea their tally would reach almost $30,000.
“When I decided to do this I was really worried about whether or not I’d raise enough money and the amount we are at at the moment is just fantastic,” she said.
“We have held a few events in town to raise money, including a high-tea and a trivia night.”
