🥾 290KM DOWN, 230KM TO GO 🥾 Pieter Lindhout is recreating the 1915 Coo-ee march in the central west, otherwise known as the ‘Gilgandra snowball’, to raise money for youth mental health awareness. During WWI about 20 men determined to enlist set off on a march from Gilgandra to Sydney in bid to recruit more men along the way. They arrived in the city with almost 300 men. Mr Lindhout was inspired by their story and is “commemorating this patriotic and noble call to arms.” He has raised $15k for Batyr, a youth mental health organisation, and hopes to hit $20k by the time he arrives in Sydney for Anzac Day. He arrived in Bathurst yesterday, having travelled 290km in just 16 days.
