Mission accomplished

PETE Buschmann has raised more than $2200 for Beyond Blue with his walk from Wedderburn to Inglewood last week.

The 17-year-old Wedderburn College student had set a target of $750 but was amazed by the support across the two towns through a raffle and collection tins at local businesses.

He arrived in Inglewood just over eight hours after leaving from outside 24 Karat Cafe. For much of the 30km trek, Pete was accompanied by sister Amelia, 12.

Support for the walk raising awareness of mental health also came from online donations that continued to be received in the days after Pete had completed his mission.

And steeled with determination, Pete and his helpers are already planning to do it all again in 2022, only in reverse with a start planned from Inglewood.

Pete and mum Bec have thanked all who assisted and supported the Beyond Blue fundraiser.
