REGISTER FOR GIFT OF LIFE’S DONATELIFE WALK 2018

Friday, December 22, 2017


Gift of Life’s DonateLife Walk—Canberra’s largest community event in support of the national DonateLife campaign—is taking place on Wednesday 28 February 2018 and registrations are now open! 

The Walk is a timely opportunity to show your support for organ and tissue donation and to join the Australian Organ Donor Register.

Gift of Life’s DonateLife Walk will start at and return to Regatta Point. Two simultaneous walks will be held, the standard bridge-to-bridge walk around Lake Burley Griffin as well as a shorter option around Commonwealth Park. Participants should gather at Regatta Point at 6.45am with both walks kicking off at 7am sharp from the same start point. Click here to download a map of the walks.

The bridge-to-bridge circuit of Lake Burley Griffin takes about 45 minutes to an hour and the shorter walk takes about 15–20 minutes.

You can walk or jog at your own pace, and pets, children and friends are very welcome. There’s even a free barbecue breakfast on the grass at Regatta Point afterwards! Limited free t-shirts, hats and show bags will be available for participants – first in best dressed.

Everyone from our Governor-General, politicians, sporting and other personalities, business leaders and government staff are supporting the walk, as well as local school and university students and community groups.

Organised by Gift of Life and sponsored by the Government’s Organ and Tissue Authority, this major event helps raise awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation and involves thousands of Canberrans every year. By participating, you help spread the word about becoming an organ and tissue donor, and encourage others to discuss their donation decision.
