Report
The four troopers reported for duty under leaden skies at approximately 9am, to attend the annual Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. This event raises awareness of and funds for those living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), and is the charity’s largest fundraising event. We cheered participants on as they set off to complete one or more of four events: the kids’ 500 metre dash, 4 km, 8km and 21 km runs/walks. It was our honour and privilege to help confer medallions upon participants as they finished their run/walk, or hand them a mandarin or a refreshing cup of water as they staggered past the finishing line. The weather improved (naturally) once the events had ended, and we mingled with civilians, posing for photos and generally chilling out. We met Dani from The Block, who with partner Dan (foreman on the current series of The Block) is a CF Ambassador. This event was my (Lady Womp Rat’s) first troop, and according to Andy, I was accorded the honour of writing the troop report, so I hope I have discharged this duty satisfactorily.

Casualties: None

Happy People: Mostly
Unhappy People: A few younglings who found the armour intimidating and cried
