Join Team Bandaged Bear and walk with Phoebe

True-life stories always have heroes.


And the story behind this year’s Bob ‘Tug’ Wilson’s Walk for Kids with Cancer has two heroes!

The first hero is the walk’s founder, Bob Tug Wilson. You might already know about him, but if not, take a moment to read a bit about Bob.

Our second hero is 16 year-old Phoebe.

And Phoebe has just learnt to walk.

Diagnosed in 2015 with Ewings Sarcoma, Phoebe underwent major surgery to have her pelvic bone removed so it could be treated with radiotherapy, before being replaced in her body. She then endured 11 months of chemotherapy.

That was followed by three months in bed and another eight in a wheelchair. Recovery was a challenge and progress was initially slow.

Phoebe is now up on her feet again and building strength every day. She has signed onto to walk five kilometres as part of this year’s Bob Tug’s Walk for Kids with Cancer.

If Phoebe can walk five, how far you can walk for #BobsWalk4Kids?



So take the road less travelled: walk 26 beautiful coastal kilometres on the 26 March and join the fight against childhood cancer.
