WHAT IS WALK FOR WAGEC?

Walk for WAGEC is a 10km walk at Centennial Park, Sydney, to raise money so women and children can walk away from violence. 

It takes all of us to end domestic violence. Help us raise $300,000 to deliver crucial programs for women and children that restore safety, build financial independence and promote their recovery from trauma.

Despite the gravity of the cause, Walk Day is a vibrant celebration of community. There’s something for everyone, with family friendly entertainment, great food from local vendors and even face-painting for our littlest walkers.

Come for a walk with us on Sunday 5 May to build safer futures for women and children.
