Dick Smith Walk With Me 2015

Take the Challenge!

While it is only a short walk for some, it's a real challenge for others. Walk With Me redefines the traditional notion of an event challenge. It's not about running faster, swimming further or cycling longer distances. It's a 2km or 4km walk challenging us all to take the time to walk along side people of all abilities.

Walk With Me is an opportunity to support and celebrate the diversity within our community in an inclusive and festive environment.

Walk With Me is an acknowledgement that 1 in 5 Australians are challenged by a disability, and recognises the inspirational attitudes and achievements of 20% of our population.

Walk With Me is made possible by a partnership between Ability First Australia, the major sponsor Dick Smith and our 12 Charity Partners.

Bring your family, friends and workmates along to Walk With Me 2015.
