The Psychosocial Welfare Services took the initiative
to have a 5 to 10 Km walk in support of people living
with cancer. It was held on 12 October 2012 at the
Simonís Town Sports field and coincided with National
Bandanna Day that will be held on 26 October this year.
The first ever National Bandanna day was held in 1994
in Australia. The bandanna is a symbol to remind people
about the experience of those who live with cancer.
R Adm (JG) D.G. Jamieson opened the event encouraging
the members to enjoy the walk and think about why they
are doing it. The members that were participating in the
walk were all exited and started walking in good spirit.
The walk started at the Simonís Town sports field
following the route pass IMM until the 10 Km turning
point for those who dared walking so far. The day turned
out well and everyone who participated seemed to have
enjoyed the walk.
Well done to the Psychosocial Welfare Services for
arranging such a successful event.
