MORE than 300 walk­ers are ex­pected to par­tic­i­pate in Ks4Kids on Septem­ber 9 at Golden Beach.

Stu­dents, par­ents and com­mu­nity members will come to­gether for a fundrais­ing walk along the Golden Beach fore­shore to raise funds for school chap­laincy in Golden Beach State School and Talara Pri­mary Col­lege.

Chap­lain Colan “Chappy Col” Cole­man said it will be a great event for fam­i­lies from both schools.

“It is a fam­ily event where we pro­mote fit­ness and fun,” Mr Cole­man said.

“We get the fam­i­lies from both schools to come to­gether to en­joy the beau­ti­ful fore­shore.

“It will be awe­some to see both schools com­ing out on a Sun­day morn­ing to en­joy the beau­ti­ful scenery and to spend some time to­gether,” he said.

Chap­laincy com­mit­tee mem­ber Ni­cole Robin­son said it’s a great lo­ca­tion for the event to take place.

“The Golden Beach fore­shore is a great venue for the fundrais­ing walk on a

Sun­day morn­ing.

“The won­der­ful thing is that all par­tic­i­pants not only join in a healthy ac­tiv­ity with fam­ily, friends and the com­mu­nity, but also have brunch near the beach.

“Ev­ery­one also helps to keep chap­pies in schools, so that they can con­tinue to bring sup­port and hope to a young gen­er­a­tion,” she said.

The morn­ing kicks off at 7.45am with sign in, fol­lowed with an op­tional 2km flu­oro run, 5km walk , free brunch(for those reg­is­tered) and then an as­sort­ment of games.

Ad­ven­ture Em­pire will host a game of Bub­ble Soc­cer and tug-o-war.

Prizes are on of­fer for the “fastest, bright­est and most in­spi­ra­tional.”

Join in the fun on Sun­day, Septem­ber 9, at Fraser Park, the Es­planade (cnr Beat­tie St), Golden Beach.
