Our second walk in Adelaide was held on Sunday 3rd November. It was the first of two events held in November, which is internationally recognised as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.
Income of $7,687 was raised and 138 people registered. One person showed great support and commitment by travelling from Sydney as she had missed the Sydney walk!
Many dressed up in some very creative outfits and it was a beautiful sight seeing the stream of purple-dressed people along the beach.
Travis McKenzie did a wonderful job as MC when our previously booked MC had to cancel. Given the lack of PA System and strong winds, it was especially challenging but he did a great job.
Malcolm Balkwill from Woolworths and Paul Leske from Coca-Cola handed out prizes to the winners:
Highest Individual fundraiser: Chung Wong
Highest Team Fundraiser: Murph’s Marchers
Most creatively dressed adult: Debbie Sutcliffe
Most creatively dressed child: Riley
