Help Support - Pheobie Hewitt - Bob Tug Wilson foreshore walk - 25/3/18
Hello !  I’ll be short and sweet because the links below tells the story.  Phoebe is only with us today because of the incredible work of The Cancer Centre at Westmead Childrens Hospital!  Here’s a photo of her during treatment and a recent one.  Words are not enough to thank them for this result so we’re doing the Bob Tug Wilson foreshore walk (City to Manly) to support them in their current and future treatment of children with cancer and their families. 
There are two links: 
If you click on the link below you can donate a small amount to any of the current team members.  Because they form part of Team Phoebe all of that money counts towards the team tally and you don’t have to walk anywhere!

This 2nd link below takes you to the page where you can register to walk with us.  You can do the actual walk on the day (the $65 buys you entry fee and the T-shirt) OR you can do it virtually over a week (the $35 buys you a step tracker)  If you choose to register make sure the you join TEAM PHOEBE and then circulate your page to friends, family, colleagues to get your own sponsorship
Not so short and sweet after all.. but hey, what a cause!
