Walkers wanted for fundraiser

Pierra WillixBusselton Dunsborough Times

The Dunsborough Country Women’s Association is encouraging people to get up and moving for its annual walk-a-thon fundraiser this weekend.

The Women Walk the World event supports the Associated Country Women of the World, with the branch focusing on raising money for women and children in the South Pacific.

Dunsborough CWA president Jan Button said the event had been running for several years and worked towards raising money for several causes.

“The money raised goes to a lot of things including agriculture and rural sustainability, leadership training, health, education, vaccination programs and a number of others,” she said.

“We are hoping to raise a good amount of money to go towards this cause and it will be a really fun morning.

“The more people we can get involved, the more money we can raise to help people, the money raised will help towards a lot of good work.”

The walk-a-thon will begin at the Dunsborough foreshore, with participants able to walk 5km in either direction before finishing up at the same location. Participants are encouraged to dress up and bring their furry friends to take part, with a $5 entry fee, while children walk for free.

There will be a raffle, with $2 tickets as well as fruit being handed out during the walk, which has been donated by Jim and Dianne Bogoias.

The event will be held on Sunday, April 2, with walkers assembling at 9am at the Dunn Bay Road foreshore and be back by 10am when the raffle is drawn.
