Great turn up at KI Mother’s Day walk against cancer

The Mother’s Day walk against cancer on Kangaroo Island was a big success.

There was a great turn up on Sunday morning with 130 participants raising $1300 for the KI Cancer Support Group.

The walk started at the Kingscote Yacht Club and headed to Brownlow along the walking track and back. 

The most enthusiastic runners did the course in just 18 minutes. 

Everyone enjoyed the walk from babies to adults.

Many wore specific colours to signify their support against a specific cancer – grey for brain cancer, white for lung cancer and pink for breast cancer.

The walkers finished off with a treat from Emily Woskett, who moved her pop-up kitchen Mini de Llights caravan from the beach at Emu Bay to the yacht club just for the event. 

Co-organisers Jan Sunberg, Cate Walden and Bec Bennett were very happy with the event and the turn out and look forward to running it again next year. 

WALKERS AT WINERY: The festivities continued on Sunday morning with many of the walkers heading up to the Kingscote Farmers Market at the Bay of Shoals Winery.

The KI Cancer Support Group also had a stall at the farmers market. 

The KI Cancer Support Group also hosted another fundraiser on Saturday night at the Parndana Hotel where Shane “Lizard” Quirke lost his long dreadlocks to raise money

More on that fundraiser in The Islander later. 

Cheryl May from the KI Cancer Support Group was very pleased with the weekend’s activities.

“What a fantastic weekend of fundraising for the KI Cancer Support Group,” she said.
