BECOME A WALK FOR WAGEC AMBASSADOR

We’re looking for event ambassadors to spread the word about Walk for WAGEC and encourage more people in the community to register, fundraise and walk either in Centennial Park, Sydney or virtually.

You can become an ambassador by completing three of the following steps:
  1. Post consistently (over 5 times) about the event on social media (this includes on your personal pages and in community groups) and tag WAGEC and hash tag #walkforwagec
  2. Sign up 3 or more people to the event (either in Centennial Park or virtually). Make sure you create a team with all your recruits and become the team captain. This won't apply to workplaces
  3. Fundraise $1000 or more through community engagement

If you complete all three steps, please get in touch with fundraising@wagec.org.au, so that we can recognise your efforts on the day (in-person walkers) or online (virtual walkers). Thank you for helping us spread the word!
