London Walkabout 2011

  • June 18 2011

For the very first time, Walkabout Foundation is organizing a city walkabout, a 15-kilometer walk in central London on Saturday, June 18, 2011. Wheelchair riders and walkers alike will cross some of London’s most beautiful Royal Parks together, including Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James’s Park. Bring your friends and family and join us to raise funds to find a cure for paralysis and donate wheelchairs to people in need around the world. Walk for people that cannot walk, walk and change a life, walk and donate a wheelchair to someone in need.
Join us for a 15 kilometer walk on Saturday June 18th at 10:00 am (with an option of doing a shorter 5k walk) around Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James’s Park to raise money to donate wheelchairs to people in need in the developing world.

The walk will commence at Hyde Park’s Band Stand. Email londonwalkabout@thewalkaboutfoundation.org to register. You will receive all details in an email once you’ve registered.

It’s free to join the walk but we encourage participants to fundraise any amount they can, whether its £200 pounds (or $300 dollars) for an entire wheelchair or just a few pounds for wheelchair parts. KX GYM is our headline sponsor, which means 100 percent of all funds raised go directly to the cause. Here’s what the money you raise can buy:

£10 = front wheel
£21 = back rest
£30 = main frame
