LEAVE the car at home this Friday and get trekking for the Cancer Council's Walk to Work Day.
The annual event aims to encourage all Australians to walk regularly, to encourage general health and fitness.
Participants are asked to walk to work, or even just part of the way.
Gladstone residents who are keen to get involved can register for free at www.walk.com.au
Once registered, both individuals and workplaces can opt to build a fundraising page.
All funds will go to the Cancer Council.
