Mrs Rachel Holmes’ Walk for Women’s Cancer

Primary Music and Performing Arts teacher, Mrs Rachel Holmes recently completed her sixth Walk for Women’s Charity. Mrs Holmes is part of the Scrambled Legs team, which consists of Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School staff members and friends. Together, the team raised over $10,000 for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

In the lead up to the Walk, Mrs Holmes sold homemade sourdough loaves to Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School staff as part of her fundraising. “Thanks to the generosity of staff, I made 46 loaves of sourdough and fruit sourdough. I raised over $280 from the bread making in total!” said Mrs Holmes.

The Walk benefits WA women’s cancer research at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and fundraisers come together to complete a marathon together in Perth.

“In previous years I have walked 60kms over two days, 35kms (pushing a friend in a wheelchair) and 42kms. This year I attempted the 42kms again.”

The Walk has seen a range of people come together to fundraise for cancer medical research and instilled a sense of comradery among them.

“The first time I walked was in a team with other staff members who had connections to the Walk. As I have had many family members and friends affected by cancer, I felt I needed to do something to help rule out a disease that crushes so many lives,” she explained.

When asked about the day, Mrs Holmes responded, “What a weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect for the walk and we all finished in one piece – albeit at different times!”
