The second annual Mother’s Day walk will be held this Sunday at Lake Forbes, and will be raising money for the Breast Cancer Support Group. The walk, which raised around $2000 in it’s first year in Forbes last year, will start at Lions Park, and make its way around Lake Forbes along a 4km route.
With 71 walkers participating in the annual event last year, Forbes Breast Cancer Support Group Coordinator Yvonne Shaw said it was hoped a similar number would walk again this year. “It’s a great walk for a great cause, and
all proceeds go towards the Breast Cancer Support Group,” she said.
“Everyone who participates will also receive a medallion for their efforts. Besides the walk, on the day, we will also have a raffle, and prizes will be on offer for the best dressed couple and the best dressed boy and girl.”
While pre-registration online ended on Wednesday night, people can still register for the walk on the day, with adult entry fees selling for $25, while children and concession can participate for $15. Family passes are also available. The event will start at 9am.
