Walk My Way gives you the chance to join with people around Australia in a 26km walking challenge – and raise money to support refugee kids to go to school at the same time!
When: Tuesday 4 July 2017
Where: Women’s Pioneer trail, Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills to Beaumont, Adelaide
Our target: $130,000 to help support 5,000 refugee children in Africa to go to pre-school!
When you register for the Walk, you’ll automatically also create a personal fundraising page to share with your family and friends.
Your friends and family can donate any amount they like to support you.
They might like to choose $26 (or multiples of $26!) as a per kilometre incentive…
…$1 per child in an averaged size Australian class (compared to 90+ children per class in a refugee camp!)
...for children in refugee camps in Kenya, Sudan and Djibouti.
ALWS takes your support there through our Lutheran team (Lutheran World Federation) and the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).
The 26km track follows the steps of pioneer Lutheran women, who fled Prussia as ‘refugees’ to escape persecution.
While we walk in their footsteps and celebrate the 500th anniversary of reformation, we also reflect on the journey of today’s refugees seeking safety.
ALWS actually began life to help refugees fleeing from Europe to Australia after WW2. At this time, there were 8 million Lutheran refugees.
In fact, one in 6 of the world’s refugees were Lutherans!
Walk My Way is a unique opportunity to reflect on where we’ve come from, how blessed we’ve been, and help those who need us now.
