The man, the myth, the legend.
All the way from Springwood, Greg Chidgey has done it - yep that's right he's made it all the way to Cairns on foot for a good cause.
The 64 year-old walked over 2000 kilometres lugging a 50kg trolley cart packed with his essentials, in a move to raise money for multiple sclerosis (MS).
Just over two months ago he stopped over in Lithgow where he received a helping hand from locals and businesses.
"The people along the way were the highlight, so friendly and helpful, all of them," Greg said.
Greg has since walked along some of the busiest highways and steepest roads in Australia and encountered many hardships along the way, but he came out smiling as he walked into his final destination in North Queensland.
His first stop was a MS morning tea at a local club where he was praised for his efforts.
"They all clapped when I entered, many thanks were expressed. They gave me two free coffees and a free beer and they were all very appreciative of what I had done," he said.
Without a support team and doing it on his own, Greg said he was overwhelmed with the amount of people who rallied around to help him.
"I couldn't have done it without the help of the masseurs, the people who helped me with the cart and the people, camping areas and hotels that let me rest up until I was right to move on.
"They were truly inspirational," he said.
Greg raised a total of $24,500 out of his $50,000 goal.
He is now set to fly home for a well deserved rest.
