Deniliquin’s inaugural multiple sclerosis charity event, Deni River Walk for MS, raised $4286 for multiple sclerosis on Sunday.
Because of its success, coordinator Robbie Landale said the walk would return next year.
The 120 participants braved the wet weather to gather at McLean Beach, most people donning something red for the cause. Red umbrellas and gumboots were popular, as were wigs.
Deniliquin multiple sclerosis sufferer, 33 year-old Shelley Haines, said despite the weather there was a ‘‘good turnout’’.
Those who couldn’t walk showed their support by donating money, she said.
Mrs Landale, who also has a family member with MS, said the support was ‘‘amazing’’.
‘‘It was a lovely walk; it’s not often people get to walk in the rain. We are encouraging people to keep donating in person or on our website.’’
Mrs Landale thanked the many local businesses, organisations and families who helped make the walk a huge success.
People can still donate by calling Mrs Landale on 0427
