How do I create a team?

The first question will you be asked when you register is if you would like to create or join a team.

Can I bring my dog?

As the walking route is along main paths, you can bring your dog, but it must always be well behaved (friendly) and on a leash. After all, we want everyone to enjoy this experience. Be mindful that this is a family event, with numerous children in attendance.

All paths across the six locations are wheelchair and pram friendly.

Unfortunately, with the nature of this event, we are unable to offer a refund if you can’t attend.

On the day how do I check in?

We suggest arriving 15 minutes prior to the start of the walk to check in at the desk.

Why are registration prices more on the day?

The registration price is more on the day of the walk to help cover the administration cost.

How does the pledge to raise $200 work?

As Cancer Council Queensland is a non-for-profit, all funds raised through the six Walk for Women’s Cancer’s events are to raise much needed funds for women’s cancers.

We encourage everyone to pledge to raise a minimum of $200 instead of paying the registration fee. We have lots of resources to help you raise the minimum $200 including art union raffle tickets you can sell. You will also be set up with an online fundraising page which really helps with your fundraising. Every little bit extra you raise ensures more Queenslanders are being supported by Cancer Council.
