Therese

Therese is a fitness and walking legend and has notched up more than 200 Heart Foundation Walks in Victoria. Theresa’s now in Townsville, looking forward to getting involved with our group and adding a heap more walks to that monstrous total! Her favourite walking spot is on the Stand and we were thrilled to be joined by her extended family on this walk. Well done Therese!

We’ll be running similar events in conjunction with the Heart Foundation every second Tuesday evening on the strand and we hope to be joined by walkers in our community that would like to get active, build and improve fitness levels, explore some of Townsville’s favourite family friendly places in a social, supportive and friendly environment and take part in a short walk led at a slow and steady pace.

(These walks are no more than 3km in total and we are aiming for 45-60 minutes walking time)
