A great supporter of NETS and in particular the 4WD4KIDS bash, Steve recently enticed Jeff Johnson, or "Jeff the Walker" previously known for his walk from Gulf to Gulf in 2007, to help him out on a special project.  The aim - to get involved with NETS, the Newborn and Paediatric Emergency Transport Service and raise funds for this vital community service.  The result, Jeff's Walk 2 - a 162 days trek from Cape Byron, the most easterly point of the continent to Steep Point, the most westerly point in WA.

To walk close to 5000 kms is a feat for anyone, but for a man, born in 1941, the commitment and passion for kids that drove him to reach his destination was nothing short of amazing.  With Steve providing the support vehicle, Jeff and a dedicated support team walked an amazing 4971 kms point to point, meeting with locals, walking with celebrities such as John Paul Young and raising money towards his target donation for NETS of $80,000.

On Sunday October 2nd, Jeff completed his amazing walk raising almost $65,000, however he and NETS still need assistance to reach their original target.
