10th Annual Walk for Awareness

Sunday, 11th October 2020

About The Event

If there was ever a time for us to come together for some good times, laughter, and love, it’s now. The 10th annual running of the largest Walk for Mental Awareness on 11 October 2020 is going to be a little different. We have created a virtual walk, so that you can walk wherever you want, or, you can still choose to join the physical event in Brisbane which will be smaller and socially distanced (entry limits apply). 

The morning will be livestreamed to the nation, beginning with an inspiring opening ceremony, where we remember those lost to depression and mental illness and honour those continuing the battle. We will have a quick warm up and stretch, then we encourage walkers to take off on an 8km walk in your local area or at your nominated start time at the physical event.Within the registration process for the physical event you will be asked to nominate a starting group to assist us with maintaining adequate space for social distancing.

We encourage you to participate in this event anywhere in Australia and take on the walk in your area.  Where possible, include some iconic local areas and share photos with the rest of the Walk for Awareness community, showing the amazing impact you’ve just made in the quest to raise awareness of depression and mental illness. 

Walk for Awareness is an event that involves bringing people together in a friendly and safe environment where issues of mental health can be discussed openly with friends, family and supportive strangers. We believe the matters surrounding suicide should be discussed, not hidden.
