Walk For Kids

Lions Clubs throughout New Zealand are holding a 10km walk for kids, including in Gore.

10km is approximately 5 times around Hamilton Park. You can participate in walking the full 10km distance or any distance to suit.

These walks are held annually to raise funds for the Lions Clubs NZ Child Mobility Foundation to enable children with Cerebral Palsy and similar conditions to have the opportunity to walk with the aid of a customised orthotic walking frame.

These are custom fitted with bracing around the childs’ chest, hips and lower limbs to provide support and alignment. Movable joints are adjustable to the growing child. Each walker costs approx. $10,000.

Please consider getting a group together and taking part in this walk celebrating the fact that we can walk & affirm those who cannot.

A sausage sizzle and coffee truck will be available afterwards.
