Crawford’s trek for Breast Cancer Awareness Network began in Melbourne 23 days ago taking him through regional towns and ending with a standing ovation from a pink-themed audience of 2300.
An emotional Crawford thanked his support team and the public, ending his ride by spray-painting a ‘pink lady’ on the stage at Crown.
The former AFL star averaged 170 kilometres a day at 35kph meeting cancer survivors and families in towns across the country.
“This has again been a life-changing experience,” Crawford said. “I met so many unbelievable and inspiring breast cancer survivors as I headed west. I am overwhelmed by all the support along the way. The families, friends and Australians affected by breast cancer do it really tough, and I am just glad I could contribute and take their minds off the pain and suffering even if only for a few minutes.”
In 2010 Crawford ran from Adelaide to Melbourne for BCNA.
The final tally of donations will be announced next Thursday night (July 18) on The Footy Show.
