More than 300 locals have already registered for the 2nd annual Gold Coast walk in Broadbeach, with many more expected to sign up on the day.

“Nobody should ever go on a cancer journey alone and taking part in this event helps fund research for life-saving treatments and support programs,” said Ms Zaphir.
On the day registrations open at 7am and the walk will depart from Kurrawa Park at 8am.
Participants will walk either 3km or 6km in support of the one in six Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with women’s cancers in their lifetime.
There will be a full line up on the day, including entertainment, market stalls and food vans.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan encouraged locals to get involved on the day.
“Around 4313 Queensland women will be diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer this year, so it’s time to step out and show our support,” Ms McMillan said.
“We’re calling on locals to join us and help make the 2019 event a memorable one.
“Get your friends and family together, dress up in your brightest pink outfits, and walk to give hope to all Queensland women affected by cancer.”
On the day adult registration is $35. Children under 5 walk free and children between the age of 6-17 can pre-register for $5 or register on the day for $10.
