Chris Walker's 'Walk of a Lifetime'
Former NRL player, Chris Walker, is taking on his biggest challenge to date as he sets out to walk from Cairns to Gold Coast, via State of Origin Game 2, rallying Australians on route and across the nation as he raises money for charities which have been overwhelmed by the Covid crisis. Chris’ beneficiaries are: Beyond Blue, RizeUp, Alcohol and Drug Foundation, and Global Awakening.
A brutal 1,757 kms over 65 days, Chris is walking for Australian individuals, families and communities reeling from the long lasting impact of Covid-19 (which isn’t over yet). For this mammoth challenge, Walker is fighting back and fighting for those who have felt the impact of poor mental health, suicide, drug and alcohol, and domestic violence abuse. Causes very close to Chris’ heart, he has witnessed how easily these issues can slowly creep up and take over a person’s life.
Commence: Monday 26th Monday in Cairns
State of Origin Game 2: Sunday 27th June at Suncorp Stadium
Challenge ends: Wednesday 30th June at Surfers Paradise Beach
