130K walk to raise funds

Approximately 25 sworn and unsworn offi cers from the NSW Police Force (NSWPF) have undertaken a walk from Gosford Police Station to Nelson Bay Police Station, a distance of close to 130kms, in order to raise community awareness of NSW Police Legacy, and funds for its legatees.

The walk began at 7am at Gosford Police Station on Friday, September 5, with overnight stops at Doyalson sports field and Stockton Surf Club, before concluding at Nelson Bay Police Station about 4pm on Sunday, September 7. Offi cers from North Shore, Brisbane Water, Tuggerah Lakes, Lake Macquarie and Hunter Valley Local Area Commands participated in the walk. NSW Police Legacy provides support to the broader NSW Police Force family who have endured the tragic, sudden loss of a family member. Legacy also aims to support the children of fallen offi cers through a traumatic period in their life. It is Legacy’s commitment to assist in this regard by bringing the family together at various events and also assist the children through their developing years, to enable them to reach their potential under very trying times.
