22 | The DRUM Magazine | August 2009 St. Ken & His Dragons Charity fund-raiser and ultra marathon world record holder Deborah De Williams was given a hand by the Avon Downs Police recently in her quest to raise money for breast cancer research. Deborah is running around Australia to raise awareness about breast cancer. She is, herself, a breast cancer survivor, and has already completed a walk around Australia back in 2004. This year however, she is aiming to be the first woman to run around to country. Deborah began from Parliament House in Hobart on the 25th of October last year and is nearly half way. In this time she has worn out 16 pairs of shoes. Deborah hopes to raise $300,000.00 for breast cancer research. On the 30th of March this year, Deborah ran into the Avon Downs Police station to be greeted by the entire population of four. Avon Downs Police voluntarily maintain a Driver Reviver Stop to encourage drivers to take a break every two hours during long trips. From the proceeds, they were happy to donate more than $100.00 to help Deborahs cause. Deborah De Williams gratefully accepts the donation from Cameron Higgins at Avon Downs Police Station on her run around Australia for breast cancer. Walking for Charity St. Ken and his Dragons may not boast the golfing prowess of Tiger Woods or the fashion sense of a Vogue runway, but that didnt stop Ken Williams, Pauline Williams, Kylie Anderson and Kath Gordon getting involved to raise money for a great cause. The brightly clad foursome spent a day decked out in all things pink to participate in the annual golf fundraiser for Dragons Abreast. The golf day was a huge success and I was definitely the prettiest piece on course said Ken. Its great to support these wonderful events and I cant say it was a tough way to spend the day. My swing definitely improved as the day wore on and Im thrilled that we have been able to raise valuable funds for Dragons Abreast, Ken Williams said. Our pretty in pink members won 3rd prize in the costume competition first place must have been pretty spectacular. Ken won the prize for longest drive but as to the final score at the end of the day . the team remained tight-lipped. I dont think we should talk about that. Theres definitely not a career in golf for us, but Kylie Anderson is a very good gardener lots of turf rearranged, Pauline Williams said. Right Ken Williams at the annual Dragons Abreast fund-raiser.
