THERE are no excuses for skipping this year's Walk the Walk - just ask Lifeline Northern Rivers counselling centre manager, Niall Mulligan.

"It's only 8km," he said.

"You can take as long as you like.

"It's mostly downhill.

"And you'll be helping to support Lifeline's lifesaving work on the Northern Rivers.

"Remember every dollar raised at this event helps us to save lives."

The walk is on Saturday, June 6, starting at Summit Gym in Goonellabah and continuing to Crozier Oval, Lismore.

Mr Mulligan said people could participate in Walk the Walk by simply walking on the day, "but it would be even better if you registered as a fundraiser at http://www.walkthewalk.org.au and sought support for your efforts from your family and friends.

"Once you reach Crozier Oval, the free family entertainment will include music, face-painting, showbags for children, a chance to meet some alpacas, a jumping castle plus an appearance by Prime Possum.

"You can also feast at a sausage sizzle and grab a good cup of coffee."
