I have been following Jimmy's Walk For Cancer since I saw a photograph posted on the Love Your Sister Facebook page when Jimmy and Samuel Johnson crossed paths last year.

His story is inspiring - at the tender age of 21 he has achieved a feat which we are all proud of.

James 'Jimmy' Harrington departed Adelaide on 19 May 2013. He undertook one of the biggest events of his life by walking 18 000 kilometres around Australia to raise funds for the Brainchild Foundation.

A family fun day will be held from 11.30am until 2.30pm on 1 June at Reynella Primary School to welcome Jimmy home. It will include live music, kids activities, a sausage sizzle, raffle, fundraising merchandise and so much more.

A guard of honour for Jimmy will take place when he arrives home.

Head along to Reynella Primary School from 11.30am to 2.30pm on 1 June to celebrate Jimmy's amazing achievements, not only raising money for the Brainchild Foundation but also celebrating that he will be the youngest person to have walked around Australia.
