Walk to Work is on again on Friday 5th October and Eoin Cameron and the Slim but Savage one are encouraging you to leave the car at home and hit the pavement.
Glenn Mitchell will be holding the fort at the ABC and you're invited to join Eoin and Slim at the ABC Studios at 30 Fielder Street in East Perth to start walking at 5.30am. From the ABC, they'll be walking down to Windan Bridge, crossing under the bridge and along the river past the golf course at Burswood to meet up with Sinead Mangan. At 6.15am, they'll be leaving Burswood and continuing to the Causeway, across Heirisson Island and then back along the river's edge to Claisebrook Cove in East Perth. They aim to be back at the ABC by 7am to finish the Breakfast program and enjoy a healthy snack with fellow Walk to Workers. If you're lucky, there might even be a water bottle, cap and t-shirt reward for your efforts!
Workers at HMAS Stirling are also getting right behind Walk to Work whether they like it or not! They're hoping up to 500 Navy personnel will be walking, running, cycling or skating the 6 kilometres to work across the causeway. They'll actually be closing the causeway from Point Peron to Garden Island for an hour to make it as hard as possible to drive.
Our roving reporter, Carolyn Monaghan met with the Base Commanding Officer, Submariner and self-proclaimed fitness freak, Captain Steve Davies, for a sneak preview of what they're doing to get HMAS Stirling mobile.
"It's pretty tough to keep your fitness up when you're posted to a ship or submarine, but we've got good facilities here on the island, so we try to encourage people to have a healthy lifestyle when they're on shore" he explained to Carolyn.
