2 in 3 Australians are affected by cardiovascular disease and it is still the leading cause of death in our country.
In July 2021, first time adventurer Brigid Shute and seasoned adventurer Rob Porcaro plan to trek on foot from Old Andado Station on the western border of the Simpson Desert (NT) to Birdsville (QLD) via the Madigan Line. The pair will cover over 750 kilometres, climbing and descending over 700 sand dunes in 23 days.
The expedition will seek to raise much needed funds for Heart Research Australia and will draw on Cecil Madigan’s 1939 expedition for inspiration.
Madigan died from cardio-vascular disease in 1947 and here we are in 2021 with heart related illness still the leading cause of death for Australians. Our mission is to help fund vital medical research.
