Rotaract organises charity walk for love of miracles

TAKING a few strides this weekend will help save the most fragile of lives.

The Mater Little Miracles walk is occurring this Sunday, May 25, at the Gladstone Marina, commencing at 10am.

Chairperson Amy Patterson-Kane is just one of the Rotaract members organising this year's event.

"It really surprised us to find how many people were affected," she said.

"There are many more than we first realised."

The Mater Little Miracle walk is a five kilometre stroll around the Marina parklands, with the objective of assisting babies and children currently in care in Brisbane.

"It's is a great cause, which supports many of our local families currently away from home seeking medical treatment," said Ms Patterson-Kane.

"It's such a fun day and our goal is to raise more money than last year."

The family-orientated day will be packed with entertainment from 9am, with stalls, raffles, Auskick and a jumping castle among the attractions.

The aim for the day is to exceed last year's total of $14,000.

Dogs are welcome to attend the event.

Registrations are open on Sunday morning, with special guest appearances from Curtis the Turtle, Frankie the Frog and Miracle Max.
