Marty of Smith Bros. Longreach on fundraising Oxfam Trailwalker : June '18SYM-PAC proud sponsors of Marty Smith, Oxfam Trailwalker
We wanted to share this great story with our client community. Long time customer Marty Smith of the Smith Bros. Longreach group of stores, is taking on an amazing effort of walking non-stop for 100km across the Brisbane Hinterland to raise money for Oxfam.
The event is not far away now and the team have been training hard — that’s Marty on the right with the black cap on. The others are old mates, Cameron Wright and Brad Neven from Yeppoon and Tim Collard from Rockhampton.
“We start together as a team of 4 and have 48 hours to finish together as a team of 4. We are aiming for 24 hours, with limited rest stops, just straight through — but we’ll be happy just to finish!” explains Marty.
“We’ve all been training hard, walking up to 14 hours per week. However, it is in the mountains so that will be an extra challenge for me coming from Longreach in Outback Queensland where the landscape is so flat!” he laughs.
“But as they say ‘if it was easy then everyone would be doing it’. There will be considerable pain involved but it is for a good cause.”
