We’re trying to raise $20,000 for the Transformations
program, dedicated to helping those suffering from
the pain of their past. Help us make a difference.
Take part in the National Transformations Recovery Walk. This is an opportunity for the
community to come together to support each other, to bring awareness to the
heartbreaking causes of addiction and bring honour to those that are on the
hardest but most rewarding journey of their life. All recovery walk funds
contribute to the ongoing funding of the Transformations Program, successfully
rehabilitating those suffering with addictions. A few steps from you could
alter the steps of another forever.
Date: 24th February 2018
Start: From 6am End: 9pm
Cost: $15 Single $30 Family
Meeting point: 2 Monaco Street, Surfers Paradise
Email info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have registered for the walk please submit your donation.
The walk will run from 6am to 6pm, beginning at Monaco Street in Surfers Paradise and
continuing down the path along beautiful beach front towards Currumbin and then
back again. You will pass well known Gold Coast beaches such as Broadbeach and
Mermaid Beach, raising awareness for Transformations as people pass you by. As
you make your way to Currumbin you will pass several check points offering
water, sunscreen, directions and encouragement from our walk volunteers. Upon
crossing the finish line back at Transformations, you will be celebrated and
congratulated by our walk volunteers for the amazing impact you have just had
in partnering with Transformations to see more lives rescued from addiction. Registered
walkers will be given a personal story from a current Transformations resident
to reflect upon whilst walking and will have an opportunity to leave a written
message of hope and encouragement at the end of the walk for that individual.
The recovery walk will open at 6am and close
at 6pm. Pizza will be available for registered walkers from 6pm at
Transformations Surfers Paradise. Walkers are welcome to complete the walk at
any time during these hours and are also welcome to choose how far they would
like to walk. The distance from Surfers Paradise to Currumbin is approximately
20km and will take 4 hours. This means if you intend to complete the entire
walk from Surfers Paradise to Currumbin and back again, you will be walking for
8 hours completing 40km. We would encourage you to join with friends and commit
to walking together during the day. If you would like to walk with one of our
Recovery Walk leaders you can do so by selecting this on your registration
Take time to reflect on the lives of others not as fortunate as you. Transformations charity walk, raising funds and awareness
Once you have registered for the recovery walk we will supply you with a
sponsorship form so that you can obtain sponsorship for the amount of
kilometers you walk on the day. The more sponsors you have and the more
kilometers you walk, the more money will be raised for the Transformations
program. We would encourage you to find a minimum of 10 sponsors that will
sponsor you a minimum of $2 per kilometre. All sponsorship donations are tax
deductible. It’s important to have your sponsors committed before the day of
the walk. We will be giving a special prize to the registered walker that has
the most sponsorship. Our goal is to raise $20,000 from this walk. Your amazing
efforts will help us reach this goal!
If you are not located at the gold coast but
would still like to take part in our recovery walk why not register with a
group of friends, find some sponsors and walk as many kilometers as you can in
your local area on the 24th of February. We’ll have one our
Transformations staff contact you once you register.
