CANDLES, balloons and live music have been added to this year’s walk to remember Wodonga woman Kelsey Watts who died from ovarian cancer.
Tomorrow’s twilight walk at Wodonga’s Sumsion Gardens will begin with music by the Wodonga Brass Band from 6pm, followed by an auction of donated goods.
Kelsey’s mother, Heather Watts, has been spearheading a campaign against the disease since her daughter, 33, lost her three-year battle in December 2011.
It is the second “Walk with Kelsey” to be held to raise money for research into a cure and collect funds for the new cancer centre.
“I encourage the community to get behind the event. We have gone bigger and better this year,” she said.
Ms Watts said people would be able to walk with candles and balloons as a way to remember cancer victims and survivors.
“People can write a message on the balloon in memory of a loved one,” she said.
Balloons will placed in the Sumsion Garden’s rose tribute garden.
There will be a barbecue before the memorial walk which will begin on dark, with walkers listening to music by the Livid Gospel Choir.
Mrs Watts founded the Border Ovarian Cancer Awareness Group last year, which now has more than 150 members.
“We have a goal to reach 1000 members by the end of next June,” she said.
