It’s so much more than a walk.
Walk2Cure grew out of Ride2Cure Neuroblastoma 2018; Steve Taylor’s epic ride of 2222 kilometres (km) from Brisbane to Adelaide which raised over $7500 for vitally needed research into the childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
Along the way, somewhere in the vast plains of the Australian outback, the idea of a walking challenge took root – this would be a global challenge, one that anyone could take part in, to raise awareness of neuroblastoma and to encourage fundraising in support of finding a cure.
What is Walk2Cure?
Walk2Cure is a bunch of people getting off their couches and walking distances that have got two’s in them. The big challenge, is to walk 2222km.
Fancy joining up? It’s simple just walk 2222 km in your own time at your own pace; it might take 12 months or 2 years whatever works for you. You don’t need any special equipment: just enable location on your smartphone and let Google do the rest. You can also use our tracking sheet to enter your distances. To get a copy of the spreadsheet to help you keep track, just email Lynette.Haines@nb.org.au to have a copy sent to you.
We have a Walk2Cure team set up through GoFundraise to make fundraising easy. You can support the team, join the team with your own page or make donations through the page. We’ve set the goal at $2222 – can you help us reach it?
Medals for all finishers!
Because Ride2Cure was 2222km, and that distance was based around the fact that two is the most common age of diagnosis of the disease.
So whether you’re walking 2km a day, 22km a week, 222km a month, or the big 2222km, we’d love to have you on board.
All funds raised through Walk2Cure go to help support research into a cure. And it’s so easy to weave it into your day!
What are you waiting for?
