Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - HOT PROPERTY -

A PA­RADE of mums in pink will be flock­ing the streets of Moss­man next Sun­day for the Mother’s Day Clas­sic breast cancer walk.

Dozens of lo­cal moth­ers are gather­ing at Ge­orge Davis Park in pink at­tire to raise funds and aware­ness for one of the most com­mon can­cers among Aus­tralian women, breast cancer.

Moss­man lo­cal Bev Gwynne or­gan­ised the event and said it’s some­thing that ev­ery­one can en­joy.

“I at­tended the walk in Cairns and I thought it would be a great ac­tiv­ity to have in Moss­man,” she said.

“It’s not just about women and moth­ers, it is an event the whole fam­ily can en­joy.

“I en­cour­age fam­i­lies to come down and en­joy the walk to­gether as a fam­ily out­ing.”

The reg­is­tra­tion for the 4km walk will start at 8am and the walk will be­gin at 9am on Sun­day, May 8.

Mums will be meet­ing at Ge­orge Davis Park in Moss­man with the walk to cost $15 for adults, $8 for stu­dents or $8 per child.

Fam­ily pack­ages are also avail­able for two adults and four chil­dren at $35 and one adult and four chil­dren for $22.

At the end of the walk the Moss­man Girl Guides will be hand­ing out free ice-creams to all the chil­dren and there will be a prize for the best dressed in­di­vid­ual and team.
