THE prices may be down, down but the blisters are up among staff members from two local supermarkets who walked 32km for charity recently.
Thirty team members from Tweed Heads and Murwillumbah Coles took nearly six hours to walk 32km between their workplaces raising $16,500 for SecondBite.
SecondBite redistributes donated surplus fresh produce from food stores to community organisations who pass it on to people in need.
Tweed Heads community group You Have a Friend is just one of the beneficiaries of SecondBite.
Giving the fundraising event a huge kick-along was Mike Dowling, CEO of local cleaning company Just 1 Call, who donated $10,000.
Tweed Centro Coles manager Frank McDermott said they got a huge greeting from customers, staff and friends and family when the weary group crossed the finish line together.
"It was quite emotional," he said.
Mr McDermott said while it wasn't quite the Kokoda Track, many participants pulled up stiff the next day having never walked that distance before.
But it was all for a great cause.
