KidsWish is excited to announce a new partnership with The Great Illawarra Walk, a 40km walk from Shellharbour to Austinmer on Saturday 9 March 2024.
With the introduction of the all-inclusive KidsWish Blue Mile along the Wollongong foreshore, everyone can participate.
There are many opportunities to get involved and help KidsWish fund free programs and events for children living with disability or illness.
The 2024 Great Illawarra Walk begins at Bean Roasted Espresso Bar Shellharbour (Addison Street) at 7am on Saturday 9 March and finishes at Headlands Hotel Austinmer. Click here to read more about the walking route.
Get a team together or challenge yourself! This year’s 40km walk from Shellharbour to Austinmer has three sections, with the KidsWish Blue mile offering a great option for families and those that do not wish to complete the whole course.
Entry is $50 for adults and $20 for children, which includes an event t-shirt, lunch, and access to family-friendly activities with all proceeds going to KidsWish.
Registrations are now open - head to The Great Illawarra Walk website here for more information and to register as an individual, register your own team or join the KidsWish Team!
SPONSOR A WATER STATION
This year it’s business verse business with a battle of the water stations competition. A donation of $1000 will get your business a water station along the 40km trek where you can kit out your station with branding, dress up and create a vibe for the walkers! Learn more now here.
Water station sponsors will also receive shout outs on socials. Quench the walkers' thirst and cheer them along, all while promoting your business and gaining exposure to over 500 walkers expected to hit the footpaths this year.
We look forward to seeing you at this fantastic event!
