Gift of Life's DonateLife Walk is happening again in 2021 !

But it's happening a little differently this time...

Dates: 22-28 February 2021

Time: Any time during the week 22-28 February 2021

Location: It is your choice 

How far: up to 5 km 

Sign-up: To let us know and for more information on merchandise  

In 2021, Gift of Life’s DonateLife Walk will be in its 15th consecutive year. The walk is one of Canberra’s largest community events and has traditionally been a 5km walk around Lake Burley Griffin.  


Due to COVID-19, GoLi is unable to hold the traditional walk. GoLi is using the opportunity to introduce a new ‘virtual’ format. Participants are encouraged to sign-up to walk up to 5km in teams, family groups or as individuals, at your favourite walking place any time between 22-28 February 2021.


Walkers will be encouraged to take photos and videos and show their support through social media sharing. Social image frames are available to help build awareness of the Walk and the cause – organ and tissue donation.

Branded merchandise will be available on a first come first served basis due to limited supply this year.  If you have merchandise from previous walks, we encourage you to wear it for the 2021 walk.

Get Creative!

  • Pull on your old Gift of Life or DonateLife t-shirt and show you care.

  • Use Gift of Life’s DonateLife Walk social media photo frames

  • Share your walk experience with friends on social media

  • Sign-up now for a chance to obtain a Walk t-shirt or hat to wear during your walk!

Frequently asked questions

Getting Ready

I am part of a walking group - can we join in?


Yes! Absolutely. Sign up for the Walk as a team and let us know how many are walking. If stocks are available we'll organise to get you some t-shirts or hats to wear on your walk that week. Take a photo or video, upload it to your social media and tag us in. Remember to have the discussion with your family and friends and most importantly register to become a donor.




I don't live in Canberra - can I be part of the Walk?


Yes! Absolutely. Raising organ donor rates is an Australia-wide challenge. We encourage participants from across Australia. Sign up for the Walk. Take a photo or video, upload it to your social media and tag us in. Remember to have the discussion with your family and friends and most importantly register to become a donor.
