Walkers will work to gain pledges over the next few weeks with donations based on the number of laps they can complete.

All proceeds will go to Whitsunday Suicide Prevention Network’s counselling and support programs and initiatives.

There is a strict no alcohol policy for the event, but spectators are encouraged to come along and cheer on the walkers.

Pledge forms are available on the Whitsunday Triathlon Club and Whitsunday Suicide Prevention Network Facebook pages or by contacting the club directly.
