Sunday 11th October is the Will2Walk annual fundraiser for the Stroke Association Victoria. The walk will see members, friends and family embark on up to a 20km walk along the The O’Keefe Rail Trail to raise funds to support the many programs and activities that make the Bendigo Stroke Support Centre so valuable to the stroke community in our region. The journey is a gesture of respect, gratitude and encouragement for the stroke community. Our walkers, each affected differently by stroke, are united in the goal of representing each and every stroke survivor and carer and the daily hurdles they overcome living with the effects of stroke.
The O’Keefe Rail Trail runs from Heathcote to Bendigo and is 50 kilometres long. Bendigo’s Will 2 Walk event will begin at just over the half way point at the Axedale Golf Course and will weave its way through spectacular views of bushland, open fields and farms, finishing up at Lake Weeroona.
