Finishing line - Marawalk

Melbourne, Australia: Now in its fifth year, the TLC for Kids Marawalk on Saturday 14 November 2015 is an exclusive and challenging event that tests endurance, stamina and people’s will to give back.

Kicking-off at Elwood Bay Water Activity Centre (Scout Hall) and finishing back at Elwood Foreshore, the Marawalk (“marathon-walk”) is a 42km stretch between picturesque Port Melbourne and beautiful Brighton.

Those wanting to take part in the walk have the option of registering as an individual or as a relay team. Individuals can walk the full 42km, a half marathon of 21km, or a quarter marathon of 10.5km. Relay teams of two people will do 21km each, and relay teams of four people will do 10.5kms each.

“The Marawalk is one of the great fundraising activities on our calendar and encourages mateship, courage and team spirit, attributes we see a great deal of in the kids we assist,” says Tim Conolan TLC for Kids Founder.

“Our goal is to expand and develop so we can make available valuable, free services which will assist sick children and their families both in and out of hospital as well as healthcare organisations working with children and young people around Australia,” he says.


During the lead up to this year’s Marawalk, a detailed training schedule complete with tips and advice will be provided by TLC for Kids Marawalk Ambassador, Grace McClure.

“We are delighted that dozens of Victorians have registered this year and their involvement will have a direct impact on the lives of those in need when it really matters,” says Grace McClure, Motivational & Inspirational Presenter and Marawalk Ambassador.

Funds raised by the Marawalkers will help TLC for Kids reach even more sick kids in hospitals all over Australia.
