Students support Blind Courage

STUDENTS showed their support after John Eder’s Blind Courage quest yesterday, especially Year 11 student Julius Peters, who could now see himself tackling a similar challenge.

“I train with him (Mr Eder) and it’s just amazing what he has done,” Julius said.

“I would like to do something like this; I would give it a crack.”

Mr Eder has been overwhelmed with the support he has received from the Warwick community after completing a 4000km journey across Australia as a part of the four-man blind courage team.

“Warwick State High School has put on a fundraiser which I must say is greatly appreciated,” Mr Eder said.

“Really that’s what it is all about; whether you have a disability or not, sometimes you need help. It’s great they are all so willing to help.”

With the aim of raising $300,000 for Vision Australia Mr Eder hopes to continue fundraising for the rest of the year.

“I still think I am just a normal bloke who went on a bike ride. I do feel I have managed to inspire some people and that’s a positive feeling,” Mr Eder said.

Donations are still welcome by visiting www.blindcourage.com or by calling 1300 847 466.
