The Laurie Bender/Barry Rushworth Walkathon for Cancer Research that was held last Sunday was a resounding success.
Laurie and Barry are overwhelmed with the response, which saw a record number of 785 walkers, both young and old take to the pavement to participate in beautiful autumn weather conditions for the walk from Wallerawng to Portland.
The premilinary figure for sponsorship of the event stands at 28000, which was a wonderful result, when one considers the economic conditions and employment in the area at the present time.
A further report and final figures will be provided when finalized. Barry and Laurie are overwhelmed by the response and wish to thank all involved for a wonderful effort again this year.
