Fundraise

The Fun-Raising Factor!

Fundraising makes the Wellness Walk experience even more fun! As you finish the 5.9km walk you arrive at the Wellness Festival to celebrate not just your walk but also the contribution you’ve made to supporting others through your fundraising efforts. 

We’ve got big dreams for 2018... we’re aiming to raise $20,000 to support and serve people living with mental illness.  Join us to help reach that goal! Whatever you can raise, every dollar makes a difference.
