Walk for Life

Sensational supporter Demetrios Livissianis has walked, yes walked! more than 300 kms from Forster to Sydney in aid of the Foundation.   


Demetrios' wife Laura accompanied him on the first leg of Walk for Life

Walk for Life was an inspirational journey undertaken by Demetrios to raise funds for multiple sclerosis research and also immeasurable awareness of this disease.

‘Walk for Life’ was given a huge kick-start on Friday 27th May when Demetrios’ wife Laura organised the sensational Taverna Charity Night.  Read more.

Demetrios, who had spent months preparing and planning his mammoth mission, was given a rousing send-off by the Forster Tuncurry Community, led by Great Lakes Councillor John Stephens and Trish Langsford's aunt, Anne Langsford.

“A ten year dream became reality in memory of my first and late wife Georgia and the late Trish Langsford,” Demetrios Livissianis said. 

“I am driven to have a part in finding the cure for MS; this is the reason why all the money I raise from Walk for Life will go to medical research.”

“The journey from Forster to Sydney of 327 kilometres was a journey that created huge awareness of this debilitating disease.  I met the most generous people who provided their hospitality and their donations.”

The Grand Finalé of Walk for Life occurred at the Foundation’s Magical Mystery Ball when Demetrios was welcomed into the Ballroom to a well-deserved standing ovation, following which Demetrios was interviewed by MC Mark Beretta.  Demetrios and his wife Laura presented a cheque for $37,000 to Foundation Chairman Carol Langsford.

“The contribution of Demetrios and his wife Laura is a true inspiration,” said Foundation Chairman Carol Langsford.  “Walking from Forster to Sydney is a very, very long way and we are really grateful.  The significant funds they have raised is a great boost to our funds for research.  We also thank most sincerely the many generous sponsors and supporters of Walk for Life.”
