Virtual Walk In 2020
Shake off the winter lockdown blues and take part in the new virtual Sunshine Walk on Sunday, November 22.
To ensure vital funds can still be raised for cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund has announced its major fundraising event featuring 5km, 10km and 20km walks will be held online this year.
After the opening ceremony is streamed live from Noreuil Park, Albury, participants will be challenged to walk their selected distance anywhere in their community, and share their photos and experiences online.
Trust Fund Manager, Kristy McMahon, said a virtual event would allow the Sunshine Walk community to stay connected and achieve something positive together in these uncertain times.
“The health and safety of our participants, spectators and volunteers is our number one priority, with cancer patients being among the most vulnerable to COVID-19,” she said.
“A virtual event will allow everyone including cancer patients and their carers to participate in their own socially-distanced walk, and to connect with other participants via social media and the website.”
