Some of the GMC staff and doctors are preparing for the Westpac Helicopter Charity Walk on Sunday 15th May. The walk begins in Byron Bay and traverses the beautiful terrain and beaches of the North Coast, taking the walkers through Broken Head, Lennox Head and on to Ballina.

But don't be put off! Some of the walkers will finish their walk at Broken Head or Lennox Head - so don't feel the distance is too great for you to give it a go. There is a need for some fitness and your individual levels of fitness will determine if you go on the walk at all or do some of it. It is to have fun and raise money for the helicopter which is a life-saving feature of our health system on the North Coast. And if you are not able to do the walk because of physical or other reasons, then consider coming along to the Ballina Life-saving Club to greet the weary but enthusiastic walkers.
