Olympian and reality TV star Paul Nunnari will once again take to the streets today in the name of charity.

Mr Nunnari, who appeared on Australia’s Got Talent as The Other Superman, will travel via his wheelchair from Blaxland Road, Campbelltown to Queen Street, Campbelltown – visiting several schools in between.

The event – officially called the Bob Jane T-Marts Paul Nunnari Wheelchair Push – raises both money and awareness for the 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer Macarthur.

The 24 Hour Fight is the region’s largest charity event, attracting thousands of people to a walkathon each year.

All funds raised by the 24 Hour Fight stay in the region to help Macarthur cancer sufferers and their families

This year Mr Nunnari will be visiting seven schools to encourage students and teachers to start a team and join the walkathon in October.

His first stop was St Peter’s Anglican Primary School, followed by Thomas Reddall High School, Appin Public School, John Therry Catholic College, St Paul’s Catholic School, Magdalene Catholic High School and finally Beverley Park School.
