About this Event

Enter and walk with us to show your support for youth suicide prevention initiates around Australia

TODAY WE'RE ASKING FOR SOMETHING MORE VALUABLE THAN YOUR MONEY. WE'RE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION

365 days of the year someone is raising money for something. Our event is a little different.

No entry fee, donations, or corporate sponsors. Today we're asking for something more important than your money. We're asking for your support and participation. Today we'll be a community of like minded people, walking around Albert Park Lake, enjoying what it means to be pretty fortunate and pretty happy most of the time.

My goal is to walk 3046km. I would really appreciate some company to share the load. I'm starting at 7pm Friday 3rd April doing laps of Albert Park Lake. If you are a little crazy come start with me. For the events official start time of Saturday 4th at 7am I will have completed 30km. Only 3016km to go!

Join in at any time that suits you. Walk a kilometre or two, increase your step count for the day by doing a full lap. Bring your fur baby, kids or a friend you'd like to catch up with.

At 7am we will leave Power House and walk to the start of Albert Parkrun and meet a few friends running or walking 5km to help our cause. A hundred people x 5km knocks over 500km. Now we've only got 2,416km left. Thats 503 laps to go.

It would be great to see you and walk together for a bit :-)
