Four ways to be part of Walk the Border, ACT
There are a number of ways in which you can get involved with Walk the Border ACT:
Donate to sponsor a walker
What is a fundraising walk without donations? Walk the Border ACT is seeking to raise funds for the ACT’s peak environment body, the Conservation Council ACT Region.
The Conservation Council has been a major force in the protection of the ACT’s urban and natural environments though lobbying, campaigning and educating since 1979.
As a non-profit, non-government organisation, every donation to the Conservation Council, no matter how small, is important.
You can sponsor one of the walkers or just donate to the walk in general by going to donate.
Become a border walker
Want to hit the ground walking? There are plenty of opportunities to be part of Walk the Border, ACT. The Walk Schedule provides a description for each stage of the walk, including the distance and whether the walking is on or off track, with some stages being much easier than others. There are stages that also allow walkers to join for part of the day’s walk.
Participants in Walk the Border ACT should set a fundraising goal and work towards raising the profile of the event. The donations page allows donors to sponsor individual walkers.
Only a small part of the ACT border follows a sealed road or footpath. The walk stages have varying degrees of risk associated with them and walkers are required to acknowledge that they are aware of and accept these risks.
Contact Walk the Border ACT [email protected] to find out how to become a walker.
Be part of the support team
Not able to join Walk the Border ACT itself? There are opportunities for volunteers to help with the running of the walk. Tasks include picking up walkers at the end of a stage or helping in managing the communications around the walk? Contact Walk the Border ACT [email protected] to find out how best to help.
Spread the word
The more people that know about the walk the more likely we will be able to meet our fundraising target. So let all your friends and family know about our blog site and Facebook page and encourage them to spread the word as well.
See the map which has bars to indicate stage starting and end points. A description of the stages is at the Walk the Border website.
