Walk With Me

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has” Margaret Mead. Cultural Anthropologist 1901 - 1978

In September – you can help us change the world
It starts with one step – which together we will turn into many

Walk With Me is an important community fundraising walk which occurs nationally in 20 regions across Australia.
People with disabilities and able bodied people walk alongside each other to promote inclusion, break down barriers, raise funds and celebrate the achievements of people with disabilities in our community.

“All donations stay in the local area where they were raised and go directly to support children and adults living with disabilities in your community and that’s a great thing” Brendan Walsh, CEO Cootharinga North Queensland

Partner with Cootharinga in this world changing event and you can change lives.
