100ks to Utopia | David Reid Homes

We are excited to announce that we are one of the major sponsors for the ‘100ks to Utopia’ Fundraiser! This event is a 100km horse ride from Hervey Bay to Utopia Falls in Mt Walsh National Park organised by Jussy Lindenburg and Tammy Farrell to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). This event will be held on the 14th – 17th of August this year. Jussy and Tammy will be riding 100km over 4 days, stopping in the local towns to spread awareness for MS and will spend each night camping under the stars with their four-legged companions!

MS is very near and dear to Jussy and Tammy’s hearts. Tammy’s mother-in-law was diagnosed in 1999, and in 2012 Jussy was diagnosed with the illness. On Australia Day in 2019, she went blind due to MS Progression. Throughout this time, Jussy has endeavored to make the everyday count – She is a mum, works part-time with David Reid Homes Fraser Coast and has even started a podcast called “Everything Fraser Coast“, which is a lighthearted and positive podcast exploring everyone and everything Fraser Coast! Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic illness involving your central nervous system. The immune system attacks the protective layer around nerve fibers. This causes inflammation and scar tissue, or lesions. This can make it hard for your brain to send signals to the rest of your body. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure.

Here are some facts about MS:

  • There are currently more than 23,000 Australians living with MS (over 3,700 Queenslanders).
  • On average, more than 10 Australians are diagnosed with MS every week.
  • 3 out of 4 Queenslanders living with MS are women.
  • The annual cost of MS to individuals and the Australian community is over $1 billion.
  • There is a 4% increase in the number of people diagnosed with MS each year.
MS Queensland (MSQ) provide support and care for people with MS and other Neurological disorders and does an incredible job assisting those living with MS in Queensland, providing many support services including accommodation, employment assistance, physiotherapy, counseling and mindfulness, equipment, support groups and much more. Throughout this time Jussy had an enormous amount of support from MS Queensland and the Fraser Coast community and has decided that this year she wants to give back by:
  • Raising Awareness of MS
  • Raising $20 000 for MSQ – to go towards finding a cure and helping people living with MS
  • Put a spotlight on the Fraser Coast
To spread awareness and raise money for 100ks to Utopia and MS Queensland, Jussy and Tammy will be holding other fundraisers on the Fraser Coast throughout the year leading up to the main event so make sure you keep your eye out for updates and upcoming events! They are sure to be a blast. Justine has already been interviewed on two radio shows on ABC Radio and Hit 101.8FM and hopes to get the opportunity to do more in the coming months.

If you would like to follow Justine on her journey to Utopia, please follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube!

Please get behind this amazing cause and help to give back.

Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Running water is Pie in the Sky for Croker

Canberra Raiders legend Jason Croker won’t be running water, he’ll be walking it. That’s all his creaking knees will allow him to do for the Pie in the Sky charity game, at the Green Machine’s spiritual home of Seiffert Oval on Friday night.

An All Stars team including Ken Nagas, Alan Tongue, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs and David Barnhill – and coached by Immortal Mal Meninga –  will play Terry Campese’s Queanbeyan Blues to raise money for charities Treehouse and Respite Care for Queanbeyan.

  While his knees won’t let him play after 318 NRL games of damage. Croker will form part of an all-star water carrying crew along with Brett Mullins and Josh Miller.
But the players on the field might need to be patient about getting a drink. “The old knees are not up to it. I’ll be walking the water out, mate, I won’t be running the water,” Croker said.

“It should be a good arvo. I’m looking forward to catching up with some old teammates and it’s for a great cause as well.”

Croker’s 1994 premiership teammate Nagas will be playing,with the former NSW winger happy to play on one condition! There’s a doctor on the sideline.
The 45-year-old has done a “little bit” of training, but was mainly looking forward to catching up and talking about the old days. “Just reliving my youth like the rest of them I think,” Nagas joked.

“I said I don’t mind doing it as long as the doc’s there, as long as the doc and the physio is there, that’s all that matters.

“To get back and see a few of the guys that I haven’t seen for a while and catch up and talk about the good old days, and see where we’re at in regards to whether we’ve still got it.
“Hopefully we don’t snap anything. It’s been a long time since I’ve played a bit of physical contact.” PIE IN THE SKY
