The Long Walk Home is a 430km+ walk across the Simpson Desert by born and bred local Birdsville girl, Jenna Brook. Jenna hopes to bring her local community community together through the event and also raise awareness and funds for the life saving service the Royal Flying Doctor Service provides to communities in rural, regional and remote Australia.
In keeping with the spirit of the walk, Jenna would like to see as many people get involved as possible. She wants to make it something that everyone can be apart of. Jenna has a create website “The Long Walk Home” where she shares entertaining updates of journey as she prepares for the walk of a lifetime.
There will be a fundraising cocktail party event in Adelaide in late March and details will follow as soon as they are finalised.
The Birdsville Hotel is running Friday night raffles in support of Jenna’s fundraising efforts. We encourage you to share this post and her website with family and friends and get behind Jenna! You can also donate directly to Jenna’s efforts by visiting her website “The Long Walk Home”.
