Good effort: Mooroopna Lions Club cooked up a breakfast for more than 200 people on Saturday.

United in cause: Greater Shepparton City Council's Joel Board, Sergeant Thelma Bull, Catholic Care's Maryanne Stivactas and Park Run event director Allan Connolly were thrilled with the numbers on Saturday.

More than 300 people ran or walked Victoria Park Lake, united against family violence during the Park Run on Saturday.

The Greater Shepparton Family Violence Prevention Network partnered with Park Run for the event that coincided with White Ribbon Day and both groups were thrilled with the numbers on the day.

‘‘The 200 specially made singlets for the day were gone quickly, it’s definitely the biggest White Ribbon day event we’ve organised,’’ sergeant Thelma Bull said.

‘‘The message from today is that we as a community want to put hands up and say ‘you, me we all say no to violence,’.’’

The singlets and a free breakfast cooked by member of the Mooroopna Lions Club were provided thanks to funding from the Goulburn Integrated Family Violence Steering Committee.

Shepparton Park Run event director Allan Connolly said it was a great day and they were happy to partner for the event and raise awareness.
