Preparations are well underway for the Jodi Lee Foundation Trek, which is coming to Yorke Peninsula in May.
The trek raises much-needed funds and awareness for the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer.
The two-day event, designed to challenge you physically and mentally, will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14.
Participants will be treated to some of Yorke Peninsula’s most beautiful coastline along the eastern section of the Walk the Yorke trail.
“Yorke Peninsula Council is honoured the Jodi Lee Foundation has chosen Yorke Peninsula as the destination for this year’s JLF Trek,” Mayor Darren Braund said.
“The event is expected to attract about 300 participants and we look forward to locals and visitors exploring Yorke Peninsula’s picturesque coastline.
“By signing up for the event you will help raise much-needed funds for an amazing charity and bring awareness to the fight against bowel cancer.
