2014 Sydney "Put Your Foot Down" Walk

Tuesday, 23 September 2014 Posted in Past Events, 2014

Our walk was held on a beautiful spring morning at Palm Beach with 217 people registering and so far $22,947 has been raised!!

We are very grateful to all who registered, donated and fundraised – you are what makes any event a success.

A big thank you to Guy Leech for doing the warm up exercises to get everyone prepared for the 'gruelling' walk!

Thanks also to all our corporate sponsors that donated food, drinks and prizes and enabled the maximum possible to go to research. We could not manage without the support of Woolworths, Coca-Cola Amatil, Wellcom, Beak and Sons, Red Jelly, GHO, Tip Top and to those who gave so generously to the prizes – Agnew Wines, muk Haircare, Woolworths and Coca-Cola Amatil.
