Warren Edwards has walked the equivalent of going to Orange and back and to Orange again so far this month. Tomorrow you can help him get back to Parkes!
It is a personal quest for the Parkes resident, who is one of almost 3,500 Australians taking part in The Long Run, The Prostate Cancer Foundation’s first ever fundraising event. Warren has several family members diagnosed with prostate cancer, the greatest threat to men’s health.
He is close to doing 300km, which is well over the required 72km for taking part. He has also smashed his fundraising target with almost $4,000 raised so far.
Members of the local Prostate Cancer Awareness and Support Group and the Parkes Action Group have ‘Walked with Waz’ each Saturday morning during September. Tomorrow, Saturday 26th September, Warren invites the broader community to join him for his final push starting at Lions Park at 9am and ending with a victory celebration.
Warren and his supporters welcome any more support for his effort and donations are still accepted to assist in developing research and medical care for those suffering with prostate cancer. You can do this by making a tax deductable donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia online www.thelongrun.org.au/fundraisers/warrenedwards or give your donation to a member of the Parkes Prostate Cancer and Awareness Group 0408 975 643 or a member of the Parkes Action Group.
