"Mother's Day Classic" walk

A national call went out to “Walk, or run, in the annual Mother’s Day Classic" on Sunday 8th May, to raise funds for breast cancer research. In response, walks were organised at over 70 locations across Australia.
Attempts to register the Rotary Club of Berwick for the local event at Lysterfield Lake were thwarted, when it was discovered that it was already fully booked. Not to be outdone, Rotarian Jen Marshall organised an alternative event to take place at Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick.
Therefore, a group of seven adults, four children and two dogs met at the Park on Sunday at 9:00am. Despite threatening weather conditions, the walk was completed successfully.  An hour later the rain arrived with a vengeance.  How lucky were we?
The walk at Wilson Botanic Park raised $568 for Breast Cancer Research, so thank you to those who walked and all those who made donations. The total raised nationally, so far, is $1,714,565.
Every step taken, helps us to get one step closer to a world without breast cancer.
Well done, Jen.
