Burn survivor running for the money Man on fire: Ultra distance runner Dave Walker is gearing up for his next challenge, a run from New Plymouth to East Cape. Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON OPERATION Text HEAL to 4740 to donate $3.00 The Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust Burns survivor Dave Walker got his Badwater Buckle after a gruelling run through California s Death Valley. But he is not stopping there. The Aucklander was the only Kiwi who qualified for the Badwater Ultramarathon in July. He finished the 217km gutbuster in under 48 hours and earned himself the coveted buckle. Proceeds from his efforts went to the National Burn Centre at Middlemore Hos- pital. Now Dave s ready to raise some more cash by running 716km from New Plymouth to East Cape early next year. He s already got $20,000 in the bag and the money will go towards a specialised micro- scope needed for intricate surgical work on burns patients. The Western Leader is fundraising for the same cause as a key backer of Proj- ect Heal -- a campaign initiated by the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust. We are urging readers to help raise the $200,000 needed to buy the high-tech equipment. Dave knows all too well how the microscope will change lives. He was just a year old when a boiling jug spilled its contents over him. The incident left him with scarring on his chest, neck and one hand. Sir William Manchester, who helped set up the National Burn Centre, treated him and Dave now wants to give something back. Living with the aftermath of a burns injury can be diffi- cult and Dave is keen to sup- port any move that may help a victim s recovery. The intermediate school teacher always found it diffi- cult as a child to take his shirt off for swimming days because it exposed his scars. Hear what he has to say about the burns centre at www.westernleader.co.nz. Donations to Operation Heal can be made at the Western Leader, 2 Waipareira Ave, Henderson, or by mail to PO Box 21167, or any Mad Butcher outlet. You can also post a cheque direct to: Project Heal, Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust, Private Bag 92815, Penrose, Auckland 1642.
