There are an estimated 400,000 polio survivors in Australia. Many are now experiencing the Late Effects of Polio (LEoP) and struggling to access appropriate health care and support. Our “Walk With Me” event aims to raise awareness about the LEoP and fundraising efforts will allow us to continue to support polio survivors and provide education to health professionals.

Polio Australia hosted the 2018 Walk With Me event on Thursday 11th October along the beautiful Glenelg beach esplanade.


Donations for this event will be accepted until 31 December 2018

The 7 “Walk With Me” teams hope to raise $30,000 in 2018
Raised to date: $4,083.45 from 36 donors
