Walk Around the Bay
Walk Around the Bay is an annual 210km walk around Victoria’s Port Phillip Bay created to raise awareness of depression and anxiety, supporting beyondblue. The walk started in 2014 and each year starts on Boxing day and ends on the 30th of December - what better time to give back than during the season of giving!
The walk is designed to bring people together, those who suffer from depression and anxiety and also family and friends who are supporting them. You can come and join in any capacity; to share your story or just spend a fun day out with friends and family! There are no rules, have a look at "The Route" and you decide what works for you.
Walk Around the Bay started small in 2014 with 10 participants and raised $2500 for beyondblue. In 2015, it grew to over 30 participants and raised almost $14000. I hope the walk continues to reach more and more people every year.
It is a movement that aims to meaningfully connect people from all walks of life and you are welcome to walk with me for 30mins, the whole day or just come say hello to cheer on weary legs.
