Welcome to six new members of our Heart Foundation Walking groups: Mary, Nina and Graeme, Trish, Bob and Geoff.

Thanks to Val McAlister for alerting me to National Pyjama Day to help The Pyjama Foundation raise much-needed awareness and funds offering learning skills for more than 1,000 children in foster care, funding educational resources, and helping provide stable, positive relationships.

Cooloola Cove Wheelie Walkers were in the spirit, raising $50 with more promised. It was our first day wearing our new red Heart Foundation Walking hoodies.

We missed the Little Haven Palliative Care’s Gratitude Walk and Fun Run in Gympie. Maybe next year we can enter a team or two.

Congratulations Col on achieving your first 50 walks, and to Tina Martin who receives her second badge to pin on herself: 200 Walks, plus Award Certificate and a $20 voucher for the online Heart Foundation shop. A great birthday present!

Fourteen of us gathered and had fun at the Cooloola Medical Transport ‘Christmas In July’ fundraiser lunch on Wednesday 19 July at the Cooloola Coast Bowls Club.

Gympie Regional Council has updated our Heart Foundation Walking Video, produced by Artist-In-Residence Leeroy Todd of our combined HF Cooloola Coast Walking groups, promoting Heart Week plus the joy and benefits of walking, to the YouTube channel. Please see the link: https://youtu.be/HxP_3sX9UBs

Walk Yourself Happy! Wednesdays and Saturdays depart Tin Can Bay Bakery with early group at 7am, or later group at 7.30am during winter. CCWW meet by 9am Mondays and Fridays at the bus shelter outside the Cooloola Cove Shopping Centre.

Contact Judy Kiddle in Cooloola Cove on 5486 2181, or myself on 0400 756 615.
