TERRIBevan epitomised the determination of those who participated in the Border’s first Walk4BrainCancer.
The Finley brain cancer sufferer wasleft paralysed on her right side aftersurgery in March, but still completed the 3km journeyin Albury on Sunday.
Ms Bevan nailed the trip with the help of a walking stick and wheelchair.
“I couldn’t get over the amount of people that came out to support us, I was ecstatic,” Ms Bevansaid.
Her friend and Albury oncology nurse Kim Kagithala raised $366 through on-the-spot donations after being dared to shave her head at the end of the walk.
She then suggested Ms Bevan follow suit.
Organiser Amanda Fintan said 150 participated in the walk which traversedthe Murray River parks of Hovell Tree, Padman and Mates.
Fifty of those enrolled on the day and an estimated $23,000 was raised.
About $7000 of that came from TeamNyz, a group of supporters of Nyree Miller, a mum of 39 withtwo young sons, who died of brain cancer in July.
Job well done: Kim Kagithala, Cathy Kennedy and Terri Bevan in Hovell Tree Park after the Walk4BrainCancer and their head shaving. About $23,000 was raised in the inaugural event which was held alongside the Murray River.
