The Great Illawarra Walk is back for 2021 and we're going to make this year bigger and better than ever.
This year all money raised will be going towards research into Vanishing White Matter Disease at the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute to support children worldwide, including local girls Chloe Saxby and Holly Burns.
Both girls were diagnosed with an extremely rare and degenerative brain disease - Vanishing White Matter Disease - for which there is no cure or treatment available.
Doctors are working on a cure, with promising research taking place, however funding is urgently required to speed up this process.
The 40km walk is from Shellharbour Village to The Headland Hotel Austinmer, and walkers can elect to cover part of this distance and walk as far as they feel comfortable with.
