VIRTUAL EVENT

Join us virtually anytime between 25th April and 1st May to walk 5km or run 10km so that women and children can walk away from violence

Benefits of walking virtually

Flexible

Walk anytime, anywhere between 25th April and 1st May 2022. This can include inside of work hours if you are walking with your workplace or on the weekend if you are doing it with friends or family members. *Make sure to integrate your Strava account with your fundraising page to track your walk!

Inclusive

If you are a workplace or team living or working outside of Sydney, come together by walking virtually. Remember, teams can include both in-person and virtual walkers!

Supported

All virtual walkers will have the opportunity to come together for a supported check-in session one month before virtual week. This will give virtual walkers the chance to connect with others who might be walking in similar places and ask questions before walk week!

Accessible

All virtual walkers will receive a Walk for WAGEC Welcome Kit in the mail when they register which includes our signature Walk for WAGEC Drink Bottle. They will also be given exclusive online streaming access to event speeches on Sunday 1st May.

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!

"I appreciated the fact that we were able to walk virtually which provides you get together a group of friends if you can't do it on a weekend due to family commitments, Covid etc."
