Geoff's Big Walk for Limbs 4 Life

Tue 8 Oct 2019 07:30 am to 03:30 pm

  • NIL
  • Lake Wendouree Foreshore - Ballarat

This event will see amputee Geoff Chandler, Limbs 4 Life Ambassador and Peer Support Volunteer walk 50kms to put a spotlight on amputation and amputees in Ballarat.

Geoff’s Big Walk is being supported by charity Limbs 4 Life, Australia’s peak body for amputees, during National Amputee Awareness Week 4-11 October.

This week is dedicated to celebrating the 9,000 Australians who lose a limb each year.

Geoff will be walking 50kms at Lake Wendouree to raise awareness and encourage healthy living in the local community.

It will provide a chance for members of the community to come along and say hello to Geoff, walk a lap or two with him, and show support for amputees in the region.
