Sam's walk for a cure
SAM Cristina is the instigator of this event and has walked from Stanthorpe to Warwick twice to raise money for Cancer Council Queensland.
In 2007, a team of five embarked on a 12-hour journey and raised $5000.
In 2009, a team of 30 embarked on a 10-hour journey and raised $13,000.
In 2019, it is Sam's 90th birthday and it is his wish to do it all again so the money raised can stay locally.
