Dubbo community members are getting ready to step out for the Sean's Two for Ten charity walk and help medical researchers make life-saving breakthroughs.
The event is a fundraiser for Inner Wheel Australia's national project, cord blood research.
Inner Wheel Dubbo's young generation group will meet on March 14 for Sean's Two for Ten, a two-kilometre walk starting at Sir Roden Cutler Park at 9am.
Community members are encouraged to take part by registering online with a donation of $10 and coming on the day, or at another time of their choice in groups of two or more.
Inner Wheel Dubbo membership officer Meryl Usback reports nationally the organisation has been a long-term supporter of cord blood research, already raising $3 million.
With the walk, it hopes to generate another $30,000 for cord blood research, which has application for a range of health conditions.
Inner Wheel highlights Australian boy Sean, the face of the campaign, as a success story after undergoing a transplant of stem cells derived from cord blood.
People interested in participating in the walk can register on the Inner Wheel Australia website.
