Cowra's Nikki Kurtz has hit the pavement for a very worthy cause. 

Nikki is raising money for Cowra Special Needs Service by taking part in the "For Fitnesssake" March for Disability fundraiser. 

Initially, Nikki walked 100kms in 10 days, however she is also walking for five kilometres each day for the remainder of March. 

"I have been working at Cowra Special Needs since the end of September last year and would love to help, if our clients would benefit from it," she said. 

"So I posted on my Facebook page and would be happy to raise any amount, I would've been happy with $200. 

"I've been so shocked as I'm over $700 so fingers crossed I might reach $1000.

"I decided to make it an extra 5kms a day till the rest of March to make it worthwhile to the people donating to me."

Nikki said she has enjoyed the challenge, despite facing some hot conditions. 

"It's been going well. It was hot some of the days when I did 10kms but I just have to fit it in between work," she said. 

"I'm doing it for our clients as I love seeing them happy everyday."
