Lots of you have been asking where Clinton is at the moment, where he plans to walk to next and what the route he’s taking is. I’ve put together these timesheets for the next week and am working on adding an updated full route post for you ASAP.
As most of you know, the dates on the original Timesheet Post have been pushed back one week.
Please note that dates and places are at our best guestimation and may not be accurate and are subject to change. Clinton may decide to stop early at a different town or spend a day resting up somewhere. We will endeavour to keep you updated via the Facebook Group and I will try and do a new weekly schedule each week for you to track his progress.
Thanks for all your messages of support, we all really enjoy reading them! Keep em coming!
The Route So Far
As you can see, we’ve been extremely generous for the next week or so and it is most likely that this will take longer than we think. Please stay tuned for updates!

[ADMIN] Huge thanks to John on the Facebook group for making this map of Clinton’s Walk so far. From Perth to Tammin that is about 180kms (112miles for those non-metrics).
A warm welcome to all our new followers and a huge thank you to everyone that has messaged, shared and donated. We really appreciate this support.
Things are starting to get serious now for Clinton and his Walk for Justice. The fundraising project was carefully budgeted to ensure that we can have all that is required to keep Clinton and the support crew safe, dry, warm, fed and watered.
Behind the scenes we have a small team responding to queries, keeping The Website andFacebook updated and generating the amazing support that you are all offering but now we need your help.
It wont be long before Clinton is out of phone range and we are very keen to purchase a satellite phone to ensure that we are able to communicate with Clinton at all times. As you can imagine, knowing they are all safe and well is vital.
Our target is $6500 and we have been pledged $4030, which is absolutely amazing and we thank you !!!
If you haven’t already, please consider donating, even $5 takes us that bit closer to achieving our target. Take a look at the StartSomeGood and see what rewards you can get for your donation. Most of us have our eye on Clinton’s incredible painting, it wont be long before that one is snapped up.
Many thanks again, keep cheering Clinton on, keep sharing, keep up the support, we are so grateful 🙂 The Support Team
