Beach walkers 
raise nearly $4,000

On the night of the biggest full moon in 18 years, more than 150 walkers strolled along Seven Mile Beach for a Breast Cancer Foundation fundraiser.

The walkers raised at least $3,750 for the breast cancer charity on Saturday, 19 March.

Walkers donned glow-in-the-dark T-shirts, wore pink glow sticks around their necks and carried lit-up balloons as they walked along the seaside.

Residents of some condos along the two-mile route from Lone Star to Governor’s Beach and back flashed their balcony lights and waved and cheered as the glowing pink parade passed by.

The Breast Cancer Foundation hopes to make the event an annual one.

The walk was held on the same night as a “super moon” appeared in the sky.

It was the biggest and closest the moon has been to earth since 1993.


Getting ready to hit the beach for the Light Up the Night beach walk to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation are Nicholas Dixey, Janet Jarchow and Ashleigh Lund.
