Hobart “Put Your Foot Down” Walk 2013

Tuesday, 12 November 2013 Posted in Past Events, 2013

Bellerive Rotary Park was the site of our new walk location for Hobart. Blundstone Arena flanks it on one side and Bellerive Beach on the other so it was easy to see why it was chosen with views of the River Derwent and Mount Wellington.

Our special guest was the deputy mayor of Clarence, Ald Jock Campbell and Jock and Caroline Kelly, Director and co founder of the Foundation, both spoke. it was especially pleasing to see MLC Vanessa Goodwin amongst the attendees as well as Robyn Turner who flew from Melbourne to attend having missed out on the Melbourne walk earlier in the year.

Prior to the commencement of the walk the ‘warm up’ crew of Matt, James and Nick from the Clarence Football Club, put the walkers through their paces.

So far income of $2,777 has been raised which is marginally ahead of last year, despite the number of registrations being down, perhaps an influence of the poor weather conditions.
