The aptly named Support Walk will raise funds for the local charity so they can continue to offer valuable services across the Sunshine Coast region to those who are living with cancer and their families.
Walk Co-ordinators, Kerron Bromfield and Terry Bailey said as a non-profit organisation, Bloomhill relies on the money raised from the Op Shops, donations, grants and fundraising activities such as the Support Walk.
“Last year’s walk a great success with 200 walkers participating to raise more than $3,000 and we are hoping we can exceed that amount this Sunday,” Kerron said.
“Reaching this target will make a real difference in what Bloomhill can offer in the local community,” Kerron said.
Bloomhill patron and former Olympian, Raelene Boyle will lead the walkers at 9am which will follow the picturesque 2.5km walk from La Balsa Park on Harbour Parade to finish beside the Kawana Surf Club where a free sausage sizzle awaits to revive participants.
“The Support Walk is a great opportunity for families to spend time together, enjoy the great outdoors and support a worthy cause,” Kerron said.
A donation of $10 per person or $20 per family is requested to participate in the walk.
