Beccky’s Dream Team ready to rumble

BENDIGO man Paul Johns will soon embark on a journey to honour his daughter Beccky, and support the cause she championed.

He and Kidney Kar Rally teammate Scott Black leave tomorrow morning for Griffith, the start of a 4000-kilometre adventure through New South Wales.

Paul thanked all those who had supported Beccky’s Dream Team, including Bendigo Toyota, which donated a ute.

“The support has just been incredible,” he said.

“I cannot thank the Bendigo community and the beautiful people who supported me enough. I would not have been able to do it without them.”

Money raised will support Kidney Health Australia to run its Kidney Kids Camps, Kidney Kids Capers and young adult programs.

Beccky was a former Kidney Health Australia employee, and was heavily involved in the camps.

Paul said one of her first tasks in her role was to speak to rally participants about the importance of their support.

He said it was always his daughter’s goal and part of her grand plan to tell her story.

“I can’t let go of that,” he said. 

Beccky died in November 2015, days after her 23rd birthday, of complications associated with kidney disease.

In addition to the sponsorship Beccky’s Dream Team has received, it has an online campaign.
