Shannon steps out in support of cerebral palsy

By Meg Saultry

Benalla's Shannon Train has been raising funds through `Steptember' for the cerebral palsy alliance for the third year in a row, after her son Rylee was diagnosed with the condition when he was 18 months old.

Ms Train has raised nearly $10,000 in three years thanks to members of the public, family and friends, and has again set out to take 10,000 steps a day in an effort to raise funds for the cause.

This Sunday, September 15, in a big fundraising effort, there will be a number of businesses donating their time and products for this cause.

The event will be held at Spot 4 Coffee Van at the Country Solar/Glider City roundabout. It will include a food marquee with egg and bacon rolls, sausages, hamburgers and Kookies by Katie B, plus activities including face painting and a car wash.

Ms Train said the support for the local community had been fantastic year after year.

"Hopefully with each year, we raise more funds," she said.
