ABOUT THE WALK

 

WHEN AND WHERE


Join us at 6am on Saturday 21 September for a 6:15am start and make a difference.

We start and finish at Golf Club car park - 38 Bolt Road, Tahunanui, Nelson. Please park on Bolt Road. No dogs or bikes, sorry.

Don't forget to wear something yellow!

The event is free, however donations/koha are most welcome. All proceeds from the walk will be donated to Supporting Families in Mental Illness, Nelson.

Stay around after the walk for some light refreshments (don't forget to bring some coins), music by Bryce Wastney and a few words by a Nelsonian on her own journey through depression.

There will be mental health help and advice available during and after the walk.

 

If it is raining heavily, the walk will be postponed to Sunday 22 September.

 

We would appreciate if you could RSVP to our Facebook event using the link below so we have an idea of numbers. If this isn't possible, don't worry. We look forward to seeing you there.

 

While the organisers will take every reasonable precaution for everyone's safety, responsibility lies with the participants.
