A long walk to save sight - Coastrek 2011

Today, approximately 600 people, including ABC personalities Adam Spencer and Graham Creed, will take part in the third annual Coastrek, to raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation.

On Friday March 4, Adam, who is an Ambassador for The Fred Hollows Foundation, and ABC TV weather man Graham, will walk 50km of Sydney's most spectacular coastline alongside 150 walking teams.

Adam's connection to The Foundation is close as he was born with an eye condition that required treatment and it was Fred Hollows who treated him.

Adam Spencer and his '70Shoe' team, made up of Wild Women on Top Director, Di Westaway, Adventure Philanthropist David Moffatt, and ABC Board Member, Cheryl Bart, will face the gruelling 50km challenge which takes in coastline from Palm Beach to Balmoral.

In the lead-up, Adam has been enjoying competitive banter with his ABC colleague Richard Glover, who offered his "gladiator" in weather man, Graham Creed, to captain the ‘Drive me Crazy' team.
