‘Women on the Move’ to hold cancer awareness walk-run tomorrow


THE ‘Women on The Move’ organisation of Linden, in collaboration with other groups and organisations, will stage the 15th Cancer Awareness Walk-Run in Linden tomorrow morning (Sunday) from 06:00 hrs. Coordinator Ms. Judy Gravesande-Noel has said that plans are on stream for an even bigger event this year, and unlike in years gone by, registration will be held this evening (Saturday) outside the Wisroc/Amelia’s Ward Park.

The exercise will commence at the Linden Utilities Services and Cooperative Society Limited (LUSCSL) on the Wismar shore, and move along Burnham Drive to the Wismar/Mackenzie Bridge, into the east of Linden via the Washer Pond Road, Sir David Rose Avenue and Republic Avenue, then end at the Linden/Georgetown Bus Park.

Among those organisations to be represented in the event are the Linden Hospital Complex, Linden Care Society, Virtuous Women with a Mission, Women of Mission International, Rotaract, Lions, Leos and the Upper Demerara Football Association.

All participants are expected to be present in groups or individually by 05:30hrs for a prompt start of proceedings by 06:00 hrs. There will be several tokens for the participants in the various age categories, and certificates will also be handed out to those who complete the run-walk, since it is not a competition.
