Our charity aims to raise funds to help children within our community.
Children are not only welcome, but encouraged to walk. There are two special sections for children to join in. Children can walk any section with their parents and may want to walk at the start of either day.
There is also a special mini-walk at the end of the second day from Warilla High School to the Shellharbour Club where the walk officially ends. Children participating in this section should meet at 4pm on Sunday 23rd at Warilla High for a 4:30pm start. Any children walking must of course be accompanised by a responsible adult.
Exciting News for 2014.
Our constitution has been developed further and the main focus is to raise funds for worthwhile causes without administration costs. Our mandate is primarily to help children in need and their immediate family and carers. The committee all work on a voluntary basis without payment. Whatever we provide for the walkers such as water and shirts etc is done so by donation and sponsorship wherever possible. The shirts this year are being paid for by the Bendigo Bank for example. We aim to donate the full proceeds of the registration fee and any other donations made by the walkers or their supporters.
This year the Neo Natal ward of Wollongong Hospital is our main beneficiary. They need new and updated equipment that will directly benefit children and their mothers. Full details will be made available soon so stay tuned to Wave FM and the web sites for updates. The more we raise the more we can help. So please be generous.
