We’re in the pink


YOU might have seen 27 lo­cals cov­ered in pink and walk­ing around town last week.

No, there hasn’t been a sud­den change in fash­ion sense.

They were supporting the Mother’s Day Clas­sic and breast can­cer re­search.

The group con­sisted of Gym 3523 mem­bers, and led by owner Am­ber Tavi­nor they walked 3km to raise just shy of $500 to go to­wards can­cer re­search.

“Some of our ladies have been touched by can­cer them­selves but most of them have a close fam­ily mem­ber or friend who has been af­fected,” Am­ber said.

“I par­tic­i­pated in the walk in Bendigo a few years ago, but this is the first time as a gym we have done it.

“It runs every Mother’s Day, how­ever lots of these ladies are mums or grand­mas and a lot of us were not able to at­tend on that day — so we brought it to Heath­cote.

“The ma­jor­ity of the group were mem­bers from our se­niors classes that have been run­ning since we opened and run twice a week.”
