A Special World Tour of Sydney
Tony Moore is putting on his best walking shoes and will be setting off on a cultural tour of Sydney whilst raising awareness and funds for his favourite charity, Special Olympics Australia.
“I wonder how many like me, because of age and health (you know, those dreaded "underlying health issues") have accepted that they may never travel overseas again,” says Tony Moore.
“Musing on that unhappy prospect whilst at home in isolation it struck me that in this wonderful city of ours there are places whose exotic cuisine, culture and history are crying out to be explored. Ok, so I can't get to Italy but I can visit Leichhardt. China may not be possible but I can experience Chinatown. Vietnam is out of the question but Cabramatta is not. So I'm planning to take a World Tour of Sydney,” adds Tony.
Next month Tony will be taking a 10-day tour around Sydney to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of different suburbs and cultural communities across Sydney. And to add to the fun and the challenge he will be doing it entirely on foot.
“I expect to cover around 200 kms at the rate of 20 kms per day. I'm hoping I can use the tour to get support for Special Olympics.”
“For those who don't know, Special Olympics is a world-wide volunteer organisation that provides sports training and competition for people with an intellectual disability. But it's so much more than sport. My daughter, who is autistic, has been a member of Special Olympics for the past 15 years. She loves ten pin bowling and Special Olympics not only enables her participation but also provides her with social engagement with friends she would not otherwise have.”
“I’m really looking forward to getting out there and exploring what our beautiful city has to offer and raising awareness for an incredibly important cause. Any support would be greatly appreciated,” adds Tony.
Tony’s World Tour of Sydney has the full support of Special Olympics Australia and the organisation’s fundraising manager, Umesh Paramasivan, has even promised to join Tony on a few days of the tour.
Every dollar counts and all donations are tax deductible.
