Perth’s second walk for Pancreatic Cancer a great success!

Tuesday, 26 May 2015 Posted in Past Events, 2015

We had a perfect morning for our second Perth “Put Your Foot Down” walk. And what an incredible walk it turned out to be. $65,700 has been raised so far, including $25,000 Woolworths raised through their in-store fundraising across the State. What a remarkable result!

Thank you to all who registered, fundraised, donated and dressed up in such creative outfits to support the Foundation through this walk.
