Adelaide “Put Your Foot Down” Walk 2013

Friday, 08 November 2013 Posted in Past Events, 2013

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.
