DETECTIVE Sergeant John Capewell finished his gruelling 350 kilometre walk this week as part of his March2Remember, a fundraiser for Police Remembrance Day.
Finishing his walk on Monday when he joined the march to the Victoria Police Memorial, it has been a long walk for this officer.
“It’s been good – the body has held up really well – we have walked hundreds of kilometres,” he said when he visited Mansfield last Thursday.
“Some days are harder than others –climbing out of the valley to Tolmie and Stringybark Creek – then back down to Mansfield – that was a big day.”
Det Sgt Capewell was raising money for the Blue Ribbon Foundation, which places emergency medical equipment into hospitals in honor of fallen police members.
“The march has been designed to pay tribute to police colleagues who died or were injured on the job, simply working to deliver a safer Victoria,” he said.
