Walking for a great cause
In September 2019, City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon will complete the Mayor’s Walk for Disability.
Dates: Saturday 14 - Saturday 21 September 2019
The event will span across eight days with the Mayor to walk approximately 10 kilometres per day, as she visits many community organisations and groups in Casey.
Funds raised will go towards the Wolfdene Foundation’s Project 28 initiative, which will see the development of supported accommodation for people in Casey who live with a disability and are still in the care of their ageing parents or carers.
Project 28 will address a current shortfall of 28,000 households Australia wide for people living with a disability, and strives to achieve an additional 28 supported accommodation units by 2028.
In the lead up to the main event this September, Cr Stapledon will participate in public training sessions called 'Walk and Talk's with the Mayor'. These sessions are held each Tuesday morning at a different location across Casey and community members are encouraged to join!
Stay tuned for further information about how you can donate. You can also check out Council’s Facebook page for regular updates about where the Mayor will be talking each week.
