Over 700 community members of all ages came with their families to participate in the annual BAPS Walkathon in Sydney, themed ‘Building a Better Community, One Step at a Time’. The event was held at the picturesque Sydney International Regatta Centre in Penrith at the foothills of the Blue Mountains.
This year, the annual BAPS walkathon raised over $14,000. The funds raised were donated to Nepean Public Hospital, Plumpton High School and Samarpan Inc. to support their public health, education and disability services to the community.
State government Minister Dr. Geoff Lee and Penrith council members, Cllr Karen McKeown and Cllr Todd Carney, supported and encouraged all the participants by congratulating them on their service and desire to give back to the community.
