Olivia is walking 200 kilometres along the Great Wall of China, up 40 degree gradients, across mountain ranges and through dust storms of the Gobi Desert. Why?
Her journey started 15 years ago, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
That life-changing experience gave her true understanding and compassion for others going through the same ordeal. She wishes to help them along the way.This walk on the Great Wall will raise money and awareness for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne. Yes, "Only Olivia" has held fund raisers for this centre in past years, but this one is different! Joining Olivia along the walk will be celebrities from the worlds of television, movies, music, and sports. Each celebrity is asking his or her fans to "sponsor their steps", donate money for every step along the way. We have a great opportunity to show Olivia and the world how much we admire her efforts to raise cancer awareness and to build a place where patients receive medical treatment as well as spiritual and emotional support. The Photos are from the start of the Great Walk On April 6 2008.
