Mary’s House Walk 2024


Join us in saying “no to domestic violence and family violence in our community.”

Our annual walk is a fundraising event to support Mary’s House Services in our mission to aid women and their children escaping domestic and family violence.

This year, our fundraising target is $250,000. This will allow Mary’s House Services to provide more case management hours for families accessing the Mary’s House refuge and the provision of more programs to aid women still living in the community at our Daisy Outreach centre.

You can participate by walking as an individual and calling on your network of friends and colleagues to support you through sponsorship or you can rally a group of friends and start a team, broadening your reach, impact and the fun you may have together on this special day.

Maps will be available on site, as will be the chance to buy raffle tickets and we have some truly fabulous prizes.

Tap or credit card facilities will be available on the day.
