As we wrap up The JLF Trek for another year, it was without a doubt our most challenging event to date. We navigated our way through rescheduling, several rounds of COVID restrictions, cancellation of the finish line celebration and the coldest Adelaide day on record, but we still delivered our favourite event of the year.
Today we celebrate 10 years of the Jodi Lee Foundation. We started by sharing Jodi’s story to raise awareness about the importance of the early detection of bowel cancer for survival of the disease. A decade on we still invest in initiatives that promote early detection – it saves lives.
Collectively you have raised over $65,000. Our thanks to every one of you who reached out to your family, friends and colleagues for donations, contributed to your own fundraising page, held an event or raised money in other creative ways – especially during the tough times we have all experienced this year.
The JLF Trek cannot go ahead without our major partner Event Managers Australia. Thank you Jodi, El, Lou, Georgie and Arthur for your professionalism, dedication and generosity.
As always, we thank our ongoing sponsors Budget Rental, Arnott’s and St John Ambulance for their support once again. This year we welcomed Fox Gordon, Bickford’s Cordial, ioMerino, Fleurieu Milk Co, Carman’s Kitchen, Mount Compass Caravan Park, Mase Agency, Deja Brew, Northline and Indulgence Food Design. These companies got behind us to help out with everything from food and beverages to trek gear and facilities. We thank them and look forward to seeing them again on The JLF Trek.
Lastly, we have to mention our amazing volunteers, most of whom return each year to keep you safe and well fed along the way.
