Anna's Walk

Anna's Walk

Anna, my beautiful wife lost her battle with bladder cancer in September 2017. It just wasn’t fair. She left behind a devoted husband, two young children Noah, 13 and Manon, 11; and wonderful family and friends. It has turned our world upside down and changed it forever.

Anna was such an inspiration to everyone that knew her, and had an amazing aura about her. A serene calmness, and an attitude of slowing down and just ‘being’ and not always ‘doing’. Very difficult to do in the fast-paced world we all live in. But it rubbed off on all that knew her – this was her legacy

This walk is in memory of Anna, and we are hoping that “Anna’s Walk” will be an annual event. It will celebrate her love of the outdoors, bush-walking and the beach.
