MATT Napier plans to make poverty history, with a pair of runners and a footy.
The Canberra man has walked across the Nullabor, football in hand, to raise awareness of global poverty.
Yesterday the Wangaratta Chronicle caught up with him 11km north of Wangaratta on his way to Sydney where his journey will end.
Along the way Matt has been speaking with politicians and schools, telling them his thoughts on global poverty and what individuals can do to make a difference.
But why is he bouncing a football the whole way from Perth to Sydney?
“The footy pretty much keeps my mind active,” he said.
“Sport also plays an important role in alleviating poverty.
“It teaches people to work together and people can then take those lessons back to their communities.”
