Mona Gasp

NEVER GIVE UP

This weekend David and I decided to do the 4klm fun walk for Mona Gasp in Hobart, Tasmania. David’s assistance dog came with us and we were amazed at how encourgaing people were and respectful of our situation. Buddy even had a cheer squad at the end and the volunteers made sure he received his medal and his food voucher as a competitor. However, even more encouraging for us was seeing people of all ages and fitness conditions out there participating for a great cause. High five to the man we met who had experienced two strokes and was competing, even though he knew he was going to be in pain at the end. I guess my point is that it is people like David and those others who are suffering with a mental or physical injury who refuse to give up and get out there to enjoy life despite the odds. Also a cheer to the volunteers and assistants who support these people to be able to do this.

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
