Wingecarribee Shire Council is asking motorists to slow down for fundraiser, Liam Haven, who’ll be traversing the Shire’s roads this weekend as part of his One Foot Forward Charity Walk.

Liam Haven is a returned soldier who will be walking from Sydney to Canberra to raise money and awareness for the Soldier On and Guide Dogs of Victoria charities.

As part of his 14-day journey, Liam and his faithful guide dog Omen, will be passing through the Southern Highlands.

Liam, Omen and a small support team are expected to arrive in the Southern Highlands, via Berry along Moss Vale Road on the afternoon of Sunday the 15 September.

On Monday the 16 September, Liam will depart from Fitzroy Falls via Nowra and Ringwood Roads onto his evening’s accommodation in Bundanoon. He will then depart Bundanoon on Tuesday the 17 September making his way towards Marulan along Penrose Road and the Hume Highway.

Liam was wounded in 2008 when a roadside bomb exploded while he was on a tour of duty in Iraq. The explosion robbed Liam of his eyesight.

Motorists are asked to slow down and take extra care when travelling along these routes during Liam’s Charity Walk.
