Registrations open for Wellness Walk 2019

The Samaritans ARAFMI Wellness Walk will return to the Newcastle CBD on Saturday 19th October. The first annual Wellness Walk was hosted in 2005 and continues to grow in popularity, with an estimated 800 attendees expected in 2019.

We are currently welcoming registrations for those who would like to walk in 2019. You can register your attendance by clicking here. 

Beginning at Pacific Park at 10am, the participants will walk 1.5km with smiles, banners, ribbons and pride to show their support to those living with mental illness and their family, friends and carers.

The 1.5km walk will culminate with a community event at Civic Park, featuring live music, speakers, entertainment, refreshments, BBQ, market stalls, activities and information on mental health.

The Samaritans ARAFMI Wellness Walk will be held on Saturday 19th October, 2019 from 10am-1pm. As we get excited for this year’s event, we’d love for you to join our Facebook event for regular updates.

The Civic Park event will host numerous market stalls from our partner mental health service providers with activities and information on the services and support available. If you are an organisation who would like to be a stallholder on the day, please click here to register your interest. 

We are grateful for the support of our event sponsors: Event Cinemas, Compass Pools, Warners Bay Hospital and Rutherford Telarah Rotary Club.
