Support those with Cystic Fibrosis

FRASER Coast residents have been invited to step out in support of cystic fibrosis at the Great Strides Walkathon this Sunday.

Jason Hellyer, director of LJ Hooker Hervey Bay which is a sponsor of the event, said registrations would begin at 9am before the 4.5 kilometre walk kicked off from Scarness Foreshore Park near Queens Road at 10am.

He said there would be a jumping castle, sausage sizzle and face painting for the kids and the young at heart to make it a great day for the family.

“We encourage everyone to come along and enjoy a refreshing morning walk along the foreshore with friends and family whilst supporting an extremely worthwhile cause,” Mr Hellyer said.

Funds raised will help Cystic Fibrosis Queensland support people with CF, which primarily affects the lungs and digestive system, through the provision of counselling, respite, information and home support services for them and their families.

People taking part can seek sponsorships and donations and pre-register online at www.greatstrides.com.au for a discount price or pay on the day with registrations costing $20 for an individual, $40 for a family and $15 per person for teams of four or more.
