October is the perfect time to get outside, shake off the winter chill and start walking!

The Walktober community is aiming to collectively walk 13,000 kilometres around Australia during October, and raise funds to help to expand the Bluearth Active School Leadership program into more communities throughout Australia. In 2015, 950 active school leaders completed the Leadership Program and ran physical activity events for thousands of school peers and community members.

During Walktober, registrants can walk individually or in a team with family and friends and nominate the walking distance they want to achieve during the month.

The more people involved, the more kilometres we all accumulate.

Help us create a healthier, more active Australia – one step at a time.
