Local legend Revie Schulz has smashed her fundraising target and challenge to complete 1000 lunges with her husband along Burleigh Beach to raise funds for charity WIRES in the midst of this bushfire tragedy.
“So far, it is estimated we have lost 500 million of our innocent, helpless friends. They got no evacuation warnings, they don’t understand how roads and fences work, they don’t have cars to drive them to the next city and they don’t have the voices to express their pain. We have to protect the animals that we have left. So I am asking my community to dig deep,” Revie said.
As if completing 1,000 walking lunges wasn’t a big enough challenge, Revie’s husband Clayton Schulz donned a 20-kilo weight vest, the vest is estimated to simulate the same weight as a fireman wearing all of his equipment.
The couple completed their challenge on Saturday at North Burleigh Beach with the cheering on from some locals, lifesavers and the couple’s daughter.
