MILDURA’S Simon Dowdle will soon embark on trip around Australia to fulfill a childhood dream while also raising awareness of a cause close to his heart. 

On Monday, Mr Dowdle will set off in his Toyota Hilux for a year-long journey across the country to raise funds and awareness for local charity Braver, Stronger, Smarter. 

The charity was founded by locals Sharleigh Stevenson and Don Wheatley to raise research funds for childhood cancers after  their youngest daughter Eva died in 2014.
