The Canowindra and Cudal-Cargo Lions Clubs are combining to stage a Lap the Map promotion in support of the Australian Lions Diabetes Research Foundation at Canowindra Oval on Saturday March 26th 2022.
The Club hope to see a lot of fit (and some not so fit) citizens pay a nominal fee to walk as many laps of the Canowindra oval as possible. The distance walked by each participant will be recorded and the total distance achieved on the day added to that managed by participants in similar events staged by hundreds of Lions Clubs across the country. It is hoped that the total distance walked will equal, or exceed, the distance around Australia.
An information table will be set up to provide information about diabetes, its management and treatment on the day. Refreshments will be available and donations to assist the work of the Research Foundation will be welcomed at the Canowindra Oval.
Diabetes is one of the most common ailments affecting millions of people around the globe so finding better ways to manage it or, the ultimate hope, defeating it entirely will benefit the many current sufferers and those who will become afflicted in the future.
