WALK WITH THE LIONS
Join us on Sunday the 18th of May for a family/community charity walk around our picturesque lake to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. We are launching ‘Walk With The Lions’ project as an annual fundraising event that has the potential to raise substantial funds to be donated to a worthy cause. The Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland was chosen this year in part because of the close association it has had with Lions. In fact it was the Lions Club of Holland Park in 1975 who initiated the formation of the Lions Leukaemia Foundation which later became the Leukaemia Foundation. The Leukaemia Foundation is now Australia’s peak body providing free support services for Leukaemia patients and their families and funding research in to blood cancers. The Foundation has a simple motto of ‘Vision to Cure and a Mission to Care’. Accordingly in Queensland over $1 million is invested every year in medical research projects and delivers a range of free services to patients and their families whose lives have been affected by blood cancers.
You can register for the walk as individuals, families or groups online by visiting everydayhero.com.au/event/walkwiththelions2014. Manual registration and sponsorship forms are also available, phone 0422008359. Early bird registration-individuals $15, families $30 and children $10.
