Lowood slimmers to walk in a good cause
THIS Sunday, be sure to get to Lowood to walk the rail trail for a good cause.
You'll not only be getting fit, but also helping Lowood Slimmers raise money for Breast Cancer Research and Alzheimer's Australia.
Last year they raised $40,000, and this year's target for the 13th annual walkathon is $45,000.
Registrations start at 8am, and Ipswich West MP Sean Choat will open the day at the Lowood Showgrounds by releasing pigeons before a staggered start at 9am.
The walk will be along the trail heading towards Fernvale.
Entry is $5, and you can choose from a 12km, 7km or 3km walk.
All walkers receive a bag of goodies.
Morning tea and a barbecue lunch and hot and cold drinks are available all day. (Note: the print edition of the Gatton Star suggested the morning tea and BBQ lunch were free - this is incorrect).
If you wish, come just for lunch and the monster auction and raffle, which starts at noon.
There is also entertainment is by Kevin Smith.
There are prizes for the best pink outfits and prizes for the most money raised in each category.
For sponsor forms, phone Yvonne on 5426 2621, Beverley on 5426 8238 or Marjana on 0413 137 870.
