Our Hero!  John Olsen receives an OAM for Walking the Walk for Leukodystrophy

Awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia as a part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2019 – Kerry John Olsen for his service to the community through charitable initiatives receives his OAM at Government House on 20 September 2019

John Olsen walked across Australia not once but 3 times, without a support team, in support of Leukodystrophy Australia and our members:

  • In 2004, John walked from Cape York to Wilsons Promontory, Victoria, and from Devonport to the southern tip of Tasmania.
  • In 2008, John began his walk at the most westerly point, Steep Point, Western Australia and ended at Australia’s most easterly point, Cape Byron, NSW.
  • In 2016, we saw John’s transcontinental adventure ‘The Long Walk for Leukodystrophy’ begin at Cape York ending in Cape Leeuwin the Southwest corner of WA mainland.

Giving new meaning to awesome, our heartfelt thanks will always go to this gargantuan man.

Remembrance Quilt

Dorothy Domaille lovingly embroidered our Remembrance Quilt in memory of her granddaughter Kym Rosser; and the loved ones of others of our families, who have passed from Leukodystrophy.
