Fund-raising a walk in park for Flemming

SHE has won Commonwealth gold and conquered Mount Kosciuszko, Mount Kilimanjaro and the Kokoda Track, so Cradle Mountain should be a walk in the park for Jane Flemming.

The Olympian and media personality, who set the existing Commonwealth Games heptathlon record in 1990, touched down in Tasmania yesterday to take part in a 15-kilometre fund-raising hike through the national park.

Flemming said she would depart today with about 40 other women, as part of a fund-raising challenge for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.

“I’m really looking forward to it – apparently it is a magic, peaceful, beautiful place . . . and after doing Kosciuszko it should just be like a nice, long walk,” she said.

Flemming said the foundation, for which she was ambassador and director, raised money to buy medical equipment that treated sick children, with funds raised from the hike going towards a clown doctor in New South Wales.

“I think the cause is unique in that 100 per cent of your donation goes towards securing a piece of medical equipment and you get to really designate where the money goes,” she said.
