JINDALEE, Clarkson and Butler will become hubs of fundraising activity this weekend as a team of Wall Warriors and supporters collect donations for Camp Quality.

Initiated by Butler resident Claire Neill, the Wall Warriors are a group of individuals who will take on the challenge of trekking the Great Wall of China.

“Wall warriors are people that are determined to live in the moment and see the best in everything,” Mrs Neill said.

The team of seven will run a 24-hour fitness challenge from 6pm this Friday, June 24 at McRae Fitness in Jindalee, alternating on cardio equipment.

They are using the event to raise funds for Camp Quality as they prepare for the Great Wall challenge, and inviting the wider community to join in.

“Whether you’re a cyclist, runner, sport fanatic or just someone who wants to come down and support raising money to create a better life for all children living with cancer and their families, then the team would love to have you there,” Mrs Neill said.

The fundraiser expanded into several community events, with a free puppet show for children taking place at Clarkson Library on Saturday from 10am.

Nearby, the Atlantis Play Centre will host a superhero-themed day and has offered puppet show attendees half price entry.

In Butler, Dome will host the after party from 6.30pm on Saturday and entertainment will include Ridgewood’s Subih Brothers and the Butler College music ensemble.

The cafe will also collect donations for the Wall Warriors throughout the day.
