IT WAS a day of camaraderie when local resident, and Lifestyle Shepparton homeowner, Marilyn Boulter took part in the 4km Mother’s Day Classic with her daughter and hundreds of other Lifestyle Communities homeowners on Sunday.

Marilyn made the decision to raise money and awareness for cancer through the event after watching numerous family members battle the horrible disease.

The 66-year-old has watched her beloved daughter battle with cancer and the decision to join the charity walk is very close to her heart.

Marilyn said, “It was a terrific day. We had my daughter and one of her friends, who as also a cancer survivor take part.

“Walking up to domain road I could see a sea of pink hats in front of us. It was fantastic.

“It’s always good to be walking for such a great cause.

“This was the first time any of us have walked in this particular event and next year we will all be bringing along other family members and really push our fundraising efforts next year.

“It would be wonderful to see far more cancer sufferers cured and this is all a part of making steps toward that.”

The Mother’s Day Classic is one of Lifestyle Communities’ many charity efforts to raise funds for cancer, an initiative formed after losing one of the company’s founding partners, Dael Perlov to cancer.
