Little Haven Palliative Care and Cancer Support - Gratitude Walk and Fun Run 2017
Little Haven Palliative Care’s Gratitude Walk & Fun Run on Sunday the 16th July, 2017 is an important part of our Annual Little Haven Week activities.
The Walk provides an opportunity for Little Haven to show gratitude to the support this community provides and for participants to honour friends and family who have passed.
All events in Little Haven Week 2017 raise valuable funds needed for Little Haven’s work in the coming year.
The Gratitude Walk provides a unique opportunity to walk/trot/run around the historic Gympie Showgrounds then head out along the gently sloping footpath along Exhibition Rd down to the beautiful Mary River and back along the same route..
Fancy dress and or wearing a Gratitude Walk T Shirt is encouraged, with prizes for best dressed individual (Child and Adult)and best dressed team.
