Created by ILF Lifetime Ambassador Dr Anita Heiss, the ALL STARS also raised cash while running in the 2013 City2South in Brisbane. This year’s team included Nadine McDonald-Dowd, Amanda Hayman, Jasmyn Sheppard and Lou Panuel. One team member Kylie Wallbridge had to pull out due to injury and so founder of the Stronger Smarter Institute took on the 21km to keep Anita company.
The ALL STARS all believe in the importance of reading in every day life, the role that literacy place in creating equality, and the significant work the ILF does to get books into the hands of Australia’s most vulnerable. This year the ALL STARS raised over $6000 for their running which will go to supporting projects in the 260 remote communities where the ILF works.
In 2016, it would be great to see FNAWN members organise a Great Book Swap in your city, town or workplace. For information see the ILF website.
