Walk 4 Hope 2021….. we remain hopeful

Given the current COVID developments, we thought it important to provide you with an event update.

We are still working towards our scheduled dates in September for Walk 4 Hope. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with the NSW Government in the lead up. If we are required to implement any changes, we will notify you as soon as possible on the status of the event and your options should this eventuate.

Please sign up for Walk 4 Hope, choose the location and date that suits you best and get your family, friends, and colleagues to sign up with you. The Walk is an important event for people within the HD community. Not only does it allow us to fundraise much needed funds, but it allows families to come together and support one another, and it is a short 4km walk that can be done at any pace. If we are unable to physically get together it is important to keep active and create awareness in our own neighbourhoods. Be seen – wear pink and green.

  • Parramatta – Parramatta Park on Sunday 26 September
  • Speers Point – Speers Point Park on Sunday 19 September
  • Orange – Cook Park on Saturday 18 September
  • Canberra – Weston Park on Sunday 12 September

SIGN UP HERE TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

Keep safe, healthy, and fit! We will be back in touch with an update soon.
