Organisers of Rural Northwest’s Health 2017 Walk for Yarri have praised the community for its support.
Rural Northwest Health memory support nurse Katie Ramsdale said the event was a great success once more. Donations are yet to be finalised but she expected the total raised to be similar to previous years.
“We will be able to announce the total after Easter but I expect it to be similar to previous results,” Ms Ramsdale said.
“There is a core of regular walkers in this event who always dedicate themselves to the cause and get great support,” she said.
“The day went really well and the treasure hunt was popular with the kids.
Geoff Ward and Kylie O’Connor put in the biggest strides for the event, each walking 21 kilometres while three-year-old Gabe Sibley did an amazing job to walk seven kilometres.
Money raised from the walk will be used to buy a big screen for the Dal Monte Cinema in Yarriambiack Lodge.
