Thank you everyone for joining us at our first Walk for Life at Centennial Park. It was wonderful to see everyone there and to receive such warm support for the walk. Thank you also Sue Timbs from EndUCD, Chris Hardwicke from Compassionate Friends NSW, and Julia and John Zuza from Response For Life for joining us on this special walk.

Walk for Life remembers and celebrates the lives of our beloved young people who have died suddenly and unexpectedly from a cardiac arrest. We wish to offer a big-hearted warm welcome to all family and friends of people who have died in these circumstances. Bring whatever emotions and feelings you have, the deep sadness from the loss and the joy at having had this person in your life. Everybody is welcome.

We have mapped out a beautiful route to walk through Centennial Park, and we will come together in the picnic area after the walk for lunch and some time together. If you prefer not to walk you can still come along and stay in the picnic area whilst others walk.

We’ve provided details on this site with information about the walk and picnic, but please email us if you have any queries.

And let us know if you are coming, there is a registration page for the walk, or email your plans to Jenny and Edmund at
