Walk helps fund women’s cancer research
CANCER Council Queensland is calling on the Sunshine Coast community to lace up and walk with purpose to help create hope for every woman’s future.
Registrations are opened for the 2018 Walk for Women’s Cancers family fun-walk set to take place on Saturday, September 8 at Alexandra Headland.
Walk for Women’s Cancers was first launched on the Sunshine Coast in 2014 by Cassandra Munson and has since grown into a much-anticipated fundraising initiative right across Queensland.
All funds raised help fund Cancer Council Queensland’s work in cancer research, prevention and support.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan encouraged residents to sign up and to give hope to the women in the community affected by cancer.
“One in six Queensland women are diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancers in their lifetime – these women are our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends,” she said.
“Getting involved may seem like a small way to make a difference, but your contribution makes a lasting impact to women touched with cancer.”
Participants are encouraged to dress up in their brightest pink gear and unite for the walk to make a difference.
The event will begin at 7am, with the walk taking off from Alex Skate Park at 8am. Participants can either take part in a 3km or 6km walk and can enter individually or as a team.
Entry fee is $25 for the 3km walk or $30 for the 6km. Under 18s are free. To register, visit walkforwomen.org.au or call 1300 656 585.
GO PINK: Men, women and children are encouraged to dress up in their brightest pink gear and unite for the walk to make a difference.
