The Walk

The 5km Walk is a flat and easy Walk that will follow the path around the lake finishing in the Walk Village. The Walk is pram and wheelchair friendly and dogs on leashes are permitted.

Join us after the Walk for a BBQ lunch, raffle, jumping castle, petting zoo, face painting, tug of war, JDRF Idol, local dance performances, sports challenges and family tent. You can also share your thoughts on our Wall of Hope and meet some Diabetes organisations.

There will be some food options available on the day however we do encourage you to bring a healthy diabetes-friendly lunch with you.

Getting to the Walk

We recommend taking public transport to the event. Take the bus on route 7 or 200 from the city to Constitution Avenue after Anzac East. Parking is also available in the Wendouree Drive Car Park.

DO Supports

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the world's largest charitable supporter of type 1 diabetes research. JDRF was founded in 1970 in the US and 1982 in Australia by a group of determined volunteers. Internationally, JDRF has been involved in every major type 1 diabetes breakthrough of the last four decades. JDRF-funded researchers have driven the advancement of day-to-day disease management tools and accelerated the pace of research through a focus on four research priorities - immune therapies, beta cell therapies, glucose control therapies and complications therapies. JDRF supports Australian diabetes research via the strategic provision of funding, investing over $160 million into Australian research to date. In addition to supporting research, JDRF Australia plays a key role in advising and influencing health policy direction across all levels of government and building community awareness of type 1 diabetes. Throughout all local and international activities JDRF's mission remains constant - to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
