LLL and LESNW Walk Together for a Good Cause
The latest example of the strong relationship between LLL and LESNW was on display on a brisk Spring morning in North Adelaide when LLL hosted an Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS) Walk My Way event.
LLL was delighted to welcome key LESNW staff, including Craig Fielke, Brad Richmond and Stuart Traeger, who took part in the 10km walk for a good cause.
All funds raised, just over $3,600, went directly to ALWS, whose programs in impoverished East African nations help children gain an education they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
Staff and friends from neighbouring Lutheran organisations gathered at LLL headquarters to collect their Walk My Way t-shirts and caps and enjoy a bacon and egg sandwich or vegetarian omelette breakfast.
LLL Chief Relationship Officer Scott Ross was on hand to offer a warm welcome.
“Partnerships are at the heart of everything we do,” Scott said.
“We have strong partnerships with all the Lutheran organisations here along Archer Street, such as the LCA National Office, District Office, Lutheran Education SA, NT & WA, Australian Lutheran College and Immanuel Lutheran Church.”
“LLL has partnered with ALWS to support its humanitarian efforts across the world for years, with grants, donations and sponsorships.”
“I would like to thank ALWS for inspiring all of us to positively impact the lives of communities around the world that are far less fortunate.”
Setting off from Archer Street, walkers made their way past the famous Light’s Vision statue, past the iconic Adelaide Oval and down to the idyllic River Torrens.
A curious giraffe looked on as walkers made their way past Adelaide Zoo, the route winding back into the bustling Melbourne Street precinct and on to the north Park Lands where grazing horses graciously posed for photos.
Walkers took in grand, heritage-listed houses to their left and the manicured greenery of North Adelaide Golf Course to their right before arriving at the finish line at the Wellington Hotel, where stories about the fulfilling experience were warmly exchanged.
It was one of the latest examples of the success of the Walk My Way program, which has helped thousands of children get the education they deserve.
