Join the The Great Illawarra Walk in 2019!
The Great Illawarra Walk is once again calling on Illawarra residents to don their walking shoes for the annual Great Illawarra Walk on Saturday 2 March, this year raising money for research into Vanishing White Matter Disease and supporting local girl Chloe Saxby.
Chloe Saxby is a 10-year-old girl from the Illawarra who was diagnosed five years ago with an extremely rare and degenerative brain disease - Vanishing White Matter Disease - for which there is no cure or treatment available.
It was recently announced that Australian-first research into Vanishing White Matter Disease will take place at the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI), with researchers using advanced methods in stem cell research to try to find a potential cure for Chloe.
While IHMRI has committed to the initial seed funding, additional funds are desperately needed to continue the research.
The Great Illawarra Walk, now in its twelfth year, is donating all monies raised from the 2019 event to this worthy cause.
The event runs over one day, with participants walking up to 40km across the Illawarra. Participants can choose to walk any distance between Shellharbour and Austinmer.
