Krazy Krusaders to paint oval pink

FROM three o’clock to nine o’clock on Saturday night, July 31, the Krazy Krusaders will be walking around and around the Chanel College oval in bright pink.

All 19 team members have been busy fundraising for their good friend Kim Norton, who is suffering from breast cancer.

Ms Norton is well known throughout the Gladstone region having been an active person in the community.

She was a councillor for the region for two terms, a community relations officer at the Port Authority for five years and worked at the Central Queensland University for four years.

She also had the chance to share her knowledge with the people of Japan where she was an English teacher for three years.

Throughout this difficult time, Ms Norton has remained positive.

“They can only really do it with the support and positive attitudes of others,” Ms Norton said recently.

To encourage the people of Gladstone to attend this event, each team has their own theme and a range of activities.

Bands will be playing throughout the night to entertain those who are participating.

Kim’s Krazy Krusaders will be hosting a Pamper me Pink station in which the whole tent will be covered in pink. They will be giving hand massages, pink hairspray for the kids, painting nails and touching up make-up.

Kim’s Krazy Krusaders have already raised more than $2000 and would appreciate your help in the fight against cancer.

To donate simply visit www.relayforlife.org.au, phone 1300 65 65 85 or go see the girls in action at Relay for Life.
