Our 4th annual 'Put Your Foot Down' walk for Pancreatic Cancer in Townsville QLD will take place on Sunday 12th August. We are hoping that the generous and supportive people of Townsville can get behind this walk once again.

Net profits from the walk will go towards advancing scientific research of Pancreatic Cancer.

The walk will commence from the grassed area (closest to beach) near the Rockpool on the Rockpool Headland, Townsville and continue along the length of The Strand Promenade (or beach), turning around at Marina Drive and walking back to the Rockpool Headland (see image below).
