Put Your Foot Down and make a real impact for pancreatic cancer

Location Details

Brigadier North Park, Townsville

The Put Your Foot Down Townsville walk is on again and we’re inviting the North Queensland community to join us in creating a national movement in 2021 to help advocate for more funding and action for pancreatic cancer.

Due to the Strand Ephemera our walk has had to move to a new location in 2021.

Dress in your best purple outfits and join us at Brigadier North Park for a great day out raising awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer with the local community.

Fundraise for people living with pancreatic cancer

Fundraising fuels medical research which is critical to improving outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Your fundraising efforts provide hope to those impacted by the disease and drives our ongoing research program, providing Australia’s best researchers an opportunity to work towards a possible future without pancreatic cancer. Fundraising is also easy and lots of fun!

COVID safe participation

We are committed to holding COVID safe events for all and will work closely with local council and state governments to comply with the regulations, restrictions and health advice at each event. Updated information on our guidelines and safety measures will be provided to all participants closer to the walk. You can see the latest COVID-19 information and advice on the QLD Health website.
