These three intrepid walkers are members of The Butterfly Foundation and are a long way from home in their efforts to raise money for the charity. This particular sponsored adventure is titled "Walkabout" and the three arrived in Grenfell at 2 am on Saturday August 26 and have made their way back to Sydney as quickly as possible to collect their sponsored winnings, to date they've collected $7,000, which is a terrific effort.
The Butterfly Foundation is the leading national body representing all people affected by eating disorders and negative body image, including people with the illness, their family and friends. Eating disorders are serious psychiatric disorders with significantly distorted eating behaviours and high risk of physical as well as psychological harm. Left unaddressed, the medical, psychological and social consequences can be serious and long term. Once entrenched eating disorders can impact on every aspect of an individual’s life and for many, can be life threatening. To make a donation visit https://thebutterflyfoundation.org.au
