Walk 4 Hope 2022 wrap up

This year we were able to reintroduce our Walk 4 Hope events at Newcastle, Canberra, Orange and Parramatta. We also had a community walk in Bingara, thanks Veronica, and Wollongong, thanks Cram Foundation. I am very proud to announce that to date we have raised $77,286.

Over the course of the four walks, we saw 500 people attend and walk! There were over 120 people actively fundraising online through their own networks and families! Our top 10 fundraisers raised a massive $30,120. What an outstanding achievement by everyone considering we’ve been in and out of lockdown since our last walk in 2019.

A very big thank you to all the businesses who donated prizes for our raffles. Also, thank you to our suppliers who provided us with food, beverages and entertainment at each event. Lastly a special mention to our volunteers who came and set-up and helped with the running of the day; without you we would not have been able to make the days happen.
