Put Your Foot Down Walk Adelaide
On Sunday 3 November, the boardwalk of Grange Jetty Reserve in Adelaide will be awash in a sea of purple as walkers from Adelaide and the surrounding region unite to raise much needed funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is predicted by experts to be the 2nd biggest cancer killer in Australia in the coming years, and claims virtually the same amount of lives as breast cancer. Raising funds is vital for investing into research to improve health outcomes for this lethal disease that has a current 5-year survival rate of just 9.8%.
Residents from Adelaide and beyond, many who have been affected by the disease, will meet at Grange Jetty Reserve dressed spectacularly in purple, as they put their foot down for pancreatic cancer and unite the community in the fight against the disease.
Over $1,000,000 has been raised for pancreatic cancer research by the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation from Put Your Foot Down walks conducted across the nation over the last 10 years. All profits from this event will be invested into vital research projects into the disease, to add to the $7 million already invested into cutting edge medical research across the nation.
Professor Eva Bezak from the University of South Australia will update the crowd on current pancreatic cancer research, with best dressed walkers and highest fundraisers acknowledged with awards on the day. Merchandise will be on sale at the event, and refreshments include a coffee cart and BBQ breakfast cooked by the local Lions Club.
Meet, Start and Finish Point: Grange Jetty Reserve, Esplanade. Assemble at the park adjacent to the Grange Jetty Cafe.
Parking: Limited street parking is available around the start/finish point.
Online pre-registration is encouraged, however on-the-day registrations will be open at 8:30am for a 9:30am start.
- $25 for all walkers 16+ years of age
- FREE for children 0-15
