We encourage you to complete Walk for WAGEC with a team which could include your work colleagues, friends or family members.
Whether you complete the Walk individually or as part of a team, you can inspire members of your community to get involved in some friendly competition and see who can raise the most money to support families escaping domestic violence.
Remember, you can create teams with a combination of virtual and in-person walkers!
"My team had a wonderful day. We were super happy about how child friendly it was. The addition of the fairy entertainer was superb!"
—Susie, In-Person Team Walker, 2021
