Walking Together and Joining Hands Against Cancer

Walking Together and Joining Hands Against CancerOn Saturday 29 October we organised a fundraising morning to raise funds for Cancer Council.

We met on the foreshore near Norman Point at 8am and walked 4km towards Crab Creek where we had breakfast. More than 60 walkers joined us, some joining in along the walk and we finished at 108 Toolara Road, Tin Can Bay.

It was a stunning day and while we were walking the men cooked up a delicious breakfast for us to enjoy. There was lots of pink everywhere as we spent the morning enjoying bacon, eggs, grilled tomato, hash browns, refreshing fruit platters followed by hot drinks, juice, cupcakes and jelly slice.

Special thanks to Maggie Travers who decided to have her hair shaved on the day, and there was guess the lucky tea cup and raffles.

We raised $1135 on the day for Cancer Council. We also received online donations, for every $5.00 donated there was a ticket in a draw for two nights at the amazing Airbnb at 108 Toolara Road, Tin Can Bay, kindly donated by Rebecca Reibel and family. Online donations reached $2006.

I would also like to thank the local businesses that donated vouchers and items: Sails Bar & Bistro, Woolworths, Barnacles, Bayview Bakery, Tin Can Bay Fruit & Veggie Mart, Reibel’s Fishery, Cooloola Pharmacy, Pop It Balloons, and Beach & Bay Weddings & Events.

Special thank you to Rebecca Reibel and her helpers. It was a team effort and by Joining Hands Against Cancer the Power of Pink raised $3141 for Cancer Council.
