Our 90th year is the perfect opportunity to put our best food forward!
To mark this fantastic milestone as an organisation, we’re issuing the
90 km challenge as part of our Women Walk the World 2015 event.
The idea is that groups of members, along with family and friends, collectively walk 90 kilometres to celebrate our 90th anniversary.
Women Walk the World is an annual event, where women’s groups in many countries organise walks in their communities along local tracks and trails, to raise funds for the Associated Country Women of the World.
It’s a great way to come together, catch up with friends and have some fun and healthy exercise along the way.
The date for the event is
Wednesday 29 April – ACWW Day – though walks can take place at other dates around that time if more convenient.
Walking Access Commission, sponsor partner for this event.
Here’s what you do:
Decide on a walk for your group. It can range from a stroll around the park, a hike through the bush, an amble around a neighbourhood or along a walkway.
Invite others. This is a great way to reach out to new potential members, and include families and friends.
Go to the
online registration form, fill it in and return to national office before your walk, so we know what walks are taking place and can promote them.
50 T shirts and
pedometers for groups that register. Initially one set per group on a first-come, first-served basis. These will be sent on receipt of your registration form.
The idea is to raise funds. This could be done through sponsorship, a gold coin donation, or perhaps an afternoon tea or sausage sizzle afterwards. Here is a
sponsorship form you can use.
Tally up the
number of people who attend and the
distance walked.7.Take photos and send to national office so we can publicise your walks and use on our website and Facebook pages. Email
Send your funds raised, and details of kilometres walked to national office.
