Cooroy’s streets were awash with walkers decked out in weird and wacky pink outfits last weekend, all participating in the Cooroy Pink Precinct Fun Trail. It was one of those typically unique Cooroy events that get a huge amount of community support, is a load of fun and is for a very worthy cause.
Over $3,200 was raised for National Breast Cancer Foundation with approximately 250 participants including all ages and even some four legged participants.
“The aim of the event is to raise awareness about Breast Cancer, the most commonly diagnosed disease in Australia. It was wonderful to see such fantastic support for the event and particularly how much it grew this year. A big thank you must go to all the people who supported the event from the organising committee to sponsors and participants,” said organiser Carol Christensen, Cooroy Chamber of Commerce Secretary.
There were loads of prizes up for grabs for best costumes and lucky door prizes and raffles for people completing the trail. There was even some fancy pink entertainment thanks to Nova Star Productions and Aerial Dreaming and a talk from breast cancer survivor, Kerrie Bryant-Adams which was a highlight of the day. Sandy Bolton, Member for Noosa, Councillor Brian Stockwell and Cr Joe Jurisevic all donned pink and joined participants on the treasure hunt around Cooroy.
