About Walk With Me
“Walk With Me” is an annual event conducted nationally through Ability First Australia’s eight member organisations, of which Polio Australia is one. The focus of the walk is to raise awareness and celebrate inclusion of people living with disability, as well as raising much needed funds.
It is not a fun run, nor a competitive fitness event, but a recreational walk providing family, friends, colleagues and members of the general public with the opportunity to ‘walk’ side by side in a non-competitive, lively, fun and very public environment.
Largely held in public spaces such as parks, ovals or local streets, State walks take on a ‘carnival’ atmosphere, with attractions such as celebrity appearances, children’s activities, marching bands and family fun.
The difference we can make together
Funds raised for Walk With Me are used by Polio Australia to pay for much needed program development including annual Polio Health and Wellness Retreats, regular Polio-Related Publications, Clinical Practice Modules, Community Education, and Systemic Advocacy.
