Peninsula Leisure trekking to support preventable blindness

Peninsula Leisure trekking to support preventable blindness

Peninsula Leisure is encouraging people to get trekking this Friday, raising awareness for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

As active members of the Frankston community, Peninsula Leisure, led by Chair Roseanne Healy and Director Chair Barbara Crook, are taking part in the Wild Women On Top Melbourne Coastrek alongside 1900 other avid trekkers.

Ms Healy said it’s important to get involved and support the community, especially when raising funds for a vital cause.

“I’ll be trekking with my colleagues Barbara and Sonia as part of our team the Peninsula Leisure Pirates, with so many other local women to raise funds for avoidable blindness,” she said.

“We definitely encourage people to get involved- even if you don’t think you’re capable of walking the distance, just get involved and give it a go.”

Now in its third year, the trek will challenge 490 teams of four trekkers in their walk for 30 kilometres from Koonya Beach, or 60 kilometres from Cape Schanck, to the finish line at Point Nepean.

Ms Crook said taking part in the trek was a no brainer when it came to supporting the Fred Hollows Foundation and getting involved with the Peninsula locals.

“You simply cannot compare the troubles that blindness causes, and walking the 30km course is the least we can do to help prevent this,” she said.

Since Coastrek began in Sydney in 2010, more than 20,000 trekkers have raised over $16 million for The Foundation.
