A record number of walkers turned out last weekend to offer their support to the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service.

A crowd of more than 1,600 people started out at Byron Bay at 7am and walked the picturesque coastline to Ballina.

Other walkers completed a shorter route which finished at Broken Head Reserve and Lennox Head.

CS91 were proud to support the event by providing all participants with branded hats and T-Shirts, and were thrilled to see so many stepping up to help the lifesaving service.
