  • Written by The Advertiser


WALK FOR OLIVIA THIS OCTOBER TO BRING LOVE & LIGHT FOR THOSE WITH CANCER

Olivia Newton John’s annual ‘Walk For Wellness’ will take place on October 9 at Alexandra Gardens in Victoria where family, friends, fans and supporters will have an opportunity to ‘walk for Olivia’ to continue Olivia’s legacy and raise much needed funds for the ONJ Centre.

This year's walk will honour Olivia’s legacy where walkers will fundraise with joy and positivity, honouring Olivia’s memory by bringing love and light to those living with cancer.

Olivia Newton John’s husband, John Easterling says “The wellness walk and wellness programs meant so much to Olivia. She really looked forward to it each year. Olivia loved meeting so many patients who benefitted from the ONJ Centre and the incredible souls who helped make this possible with their fundraising efforts. We look forward to honouring her legacy and walking for Olivia - the way she always walked for us.”

 The ‘Walk For Wellness’ will see participants walk approximately 5 km around Melbourne’s iconic ‘Tan’ track with family and friends to support people with cancer. All participants at Alexandra Gardens will also receive a medal as a small thank you for their participation. 

Tickets are limited, however supporters nationally (and globally) are encouraged to walk virtually to show their support.

Tickets to the walk will be $65 per adult, $50 concession, $25 per child (3 - 17) and $ and a special $20 ‘puppy ticket’ will be available for furry family members, which will come with a complimentary ‘Olivia’s Walk for Wellness’ dog bandana.

All funds raised from the event will fund vital evidence-based wellness programs.
