A PERTH singing duo will launch a social event to promote health and wellbeing among Indigenous women and children this month.

Clarkson resident Kristel Kickett said she and performing partner Candice Lorrae would launch the Merindas – Inspire on November 25 from 8am at Victoria Gardens in East Perth.

“As strong role models in our community through our music we’ve been making a solid change in ourselves in health,” the singer-songwriter said.

“We were inspired to create an event for our indigenous women in the community to also make a healthy and positive change.

“This event is open to all women and children.”

Particpants will walk 6.83km around the Burswood loop to boost the conversation about health.

It costs $20 for adults, $10 for teenagers aged 13-17 and children under 12 are free.
