Well Done ALEXXA!!!!!!! Well Done Tribe!!!!!

Over the weekend just passed Alexxa completed a 60 mile walk (20 miles per day) in aid of Breast Cancer. The walk started in torrential rain on Friday and finished pretty much the same. The walkers were spared the need to pitch their tents in horizontal rain and were given accomodation in a long abandoned office complex. Having managed to survive a night which contained some frightening noises of which Alexxa can only assume was peoples sleep noises and no more than a chipped nail (oh my god, so precious)it was off into the beautiful Sunshine for Saturdays 20 miles. Night two was tented, and having enlisted the help of two maths professors and a team of buff labourers they managed to pitch said tent only two hours after unpacking it! Having been Hushed up last year by nearby tent occupants and Der Gestapo because of childish raucous behavior AFTER lights out! Alexxa and her tent buddy (not sure who that was) were better behaved and managed not to scramble into the local downtown area on a beer and bloke binge. By all accounts snoring from the tent was kept at acceptable levels.
The last day started similarly to Saturday weather wise and although there was a long slog to the lunch break...Alexxa and this remarkable group of people made it safely to the end!!
We are all VERY proud of Alexxa and hope you are to....especially when I tell you that she was unable to train for this until almost 4 days before the walk because of a damaged Achilles, and only made it through the walk with copious amounts of teeth gritting and pain killers!!! Well done Alexxa!!!
A HUGE thank you also has to go out to all of our Tribe Residents who supported this endeavour!! In all, Tribe Islands donated $200 (real dollars) to this worthy cause...YOU GUYS ARE FANTASTIC...SO THANK YOU FROM ALEXXA AND MYSELF!!
