How far would you go to help someone?
For Mittagong's Andrew Mevissen, the answer is 100 kilometres, all by foot as he steps out this weekend to raise money to help people with cerebral palsy as part of Steptember.
On Saturday he's walking from Mittagong to Goodman's Ford, then on Sunday to Paddy's River via Berrima and Canyonleigh for a total of 100km, with 2000 pushups and 1000 squats thrown in for fun.
He said the walk was all about challenging himself, at the same time as helping people who needed assistance.
"I've got a passion for helping people who can't walk, and that's the people with cerebral palsy, and it's part of Steptember to raise money for people with cerebral palsy," he said.
"They've raised about $10 million so far and I've contributed about $2000 of that."
Andrew hopes to raise more, and all the money he collects will be used to buy mobility aids for people with cerebral palsy.
Andrew said he had always been a fan of walking, but had never tackled any distance close to 100 km.
"It's not a massive effort that I'm doing but it's my personal challenge and it's important to me and it's a great feat for me to do physically, but also empotionally by being able to help others as well," he said.
