Belinda Green refused to let multiple sclerosis get her down - now the community is rallying to ensure her legacy lives on.
Ms Green, 25, died on Monday, April 15, in a collision on the Princes Highway two kilometres south of Narooma.
A week before, she had told colleagues at LJ Hooker she intended to walk in The May 50K campaign, for MS Research Australia.
Now, they have vowed to walk in her place.
Police said Ms Green was travelling north in her Ford Fiesta on a wet road when she collided with a southbound light truck towing a chipper trailer.
I think she knew she needed to get on with life a little earlier than other people her age.Colleague and friend Steve Hutcheson
Colleagues said she was heading to the gym at 7am. Her exercise routine was all part of her determination to remain as healthy as possible despite being diagnosed with MS at the age of 16.
Agent Steven Hutcheson said she would often spend more than an hour at the gym before work.
"She would then come in and start organising our day, telling us where we needed to be and what we needed to do," Mr Hutcheson said.
"She was in the process of changing medication; her condition was something she was on top of and very aware of.
"I think she knew she needed to get on with life a little earlier than other people her age.
Being a sufferer of MS myself, I know the struggles people faceThe late Belinda Green
"She had a mature outlook on life, she wasn't your average 25-year old.
"When I look back at what I was doing when I was 25, she was much more advanced.
"I know she wanted to tick a few boxes in her life before her condition got to her."

Ms Green grew up in Hilltop, north of the Southern Highlands and moved to Narooma to live with her partner and begin a career as a business systems operator, supporting agents at Narooma and Bermagui.
She had created a fundraising page for The May 50K and set a goal to walk 50 kilometres, raise $1500 and "leave my limits behind" in May.
"Being a sufferer of MS myself, I know the struggles some people face as we are all affected differently and no two cases (are) the same," she wrote on her page.
She would never let her condition get to herColleague Christine Ewin
"I never thought that I would have been one of the many MS sufferers to live a normal every day life, where there are so many out there who struggle with basic life and require aid."
She urged everyone to donate and show sufferers "they are not alone".

Mr Hutcheson said Ms Green was honest about her condition.
"She discussed it very openly, it was nothing she was ashamed about or embarrassed by," he said.
One of their last conversations, was about her walk.
"She said, 'right, you guys, this is what I am doing and you are going to sponsor me'," he said.
"We all said, 'yep, tell us how much' - no questions asked.
"We all want to finish Belinda's 50km for her; there are others in the community who all want to raise as much money and smash her target of $1500 out of the water.
"This is one of the small things we can do to remember her."
General manager of LJ Hooker Eurobodalla, Christine Ewin, said each team member would nominate a distance to walk in memory of Ms Green.
"This is a way of honoring Belinda," she said.
"She would never let her condition get to her, she stayed fit and looked after herself.
"It is something I can put under my team. It gives them something positive to do for her."
Ms Ewin wants Ms Green to become one of the top fundraisers in The May 50K campaign.
"I would love to see her make a podium finish as the top fundraiser, we want to blow it out of the ball-park," she said.
