After two postponements due to rain, Tauranga Parents Centre is hoping for fine weather on Sunday for its Fire and Ice themed family walk around The Lakes in Tauriko.
Walk the Lakes is the annual fundraising event for the organisation, which is a key community provider of ante-natal and parent education classes. This year participants are encouraged to dress to a Fire and Ice theme.
The 3.5km stroll around the lake includes cobbled pathways and footpaths, and is suitable for strollers and prams. Along the walk participants are in with the chance of a number of spot prizes.
After the walk there will be a vintage fire engine providing rides for a gold coin donation. There will also be activity stations, face-painting and a barbecue provided by Porse as well as Mr Whippy and Coffee Fix to provide a caffeine boost for the grown-ups.
Walk the Lakes will be held at 10am on Sunday, November 19 at The Lakes subdivision in Tauriko. Registration starts from 9am and cost is $10 for an individual or a family. All registrations enter a prize draw. There is no Eftpos available so bring cash. Prize-giving will be at 11.15am and participants need to be present to win.
