Join Bli Bli residents for White Ribbon event

By Rachel Meyers

THE picturesque Parklakes 2 residential community will be the backdrop when Sunshine Coast residents run or walk to raise funds for the anti-domestic violence cause White Ribbon on Sunday, September 24.

Organised by the Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch, the inaugural event is expected to attract people of all ages and abilities who will embark on a leisurely 4km walk or run through Parklakes.

Neighborhood Watch area co-ordinator Edith Blanck said an overwhelming response had been received from locals wanting to support the cause.

“We’ve had a great response from residents within Bli Bli as well as those people who live at Parklakes 1 and 2 and both the local Halcyon Retirement Villages who are keen to participate,” she said. “It’s a really active and engaged community and we’re thrilled that they want to support such an important cause. We’ve also worked hard to create a carnival-like atmosphere when the participants conclude their walk or run so they can relax and enjoy their Sunday while also supporting local community groups such as Crime Stoppers, the Bli Bli School, and the local fire brigade who will all be involved in various stalls on the day.”

Registrations are from 6.30am with the event starting at 8am. Cost is $15 per family, $10 adults and $5 students. Visit
