Big Walk FAQS

Here’s a list of our frequently asked questions. If your query’s not covered here, feel free to call us on (08) 9489 1100, email stitches@pchf.org.au or use this online form. We’ll be happy to help.

When and where is the Big Walk?

The Walk is on Sunday 12 November with start times which vary depending on the distance you are walking, and all the fun happens at the beautiful Burswood Park.

Is it the same as last year?

While the route and location is the same as last year, we have been working hard to add heaps of new fun activities around the course. With 9 new activity stations you will be able to dance, skip, hula and bubble your way around Burswood Park. We’re also providing every Walker with an exclusive T-shirt for the first time this year – so make sure you register to get yours and wear it with pride on 12 November.

Can I take part on my own?

Yes, for sure! We welcome groups of all sizes, as well as solo walkers!

How much does it cost?

The registration fees vary based on your age and group size. We offer an “early bird” rate for each of the fees which is cheaper than the on-the-day price.

How long is the walk?

There are two distances you can complete: 6km and 15km so we have a distance perfect for a family walk, or a more challenging adventure!

Can I join on the day?

Yes you can, however we will only have a limited stock of T-shirts and the registration fees will be more on the day.

Will I get some help with my fundraising?

For sure. As every dollar makes a difference, we’re here to help. We’ll provide you with tips, advice and support via email and phone as you prepare for the Big Walk!

Where does my registration fee go?

The registration fee covers the costs of delivering a safe, fun and exciting event. All of your fundraising dollars will go to help sick kids at PMH.

Do I get an online fundraising page?

Yes you do, thanks to our friends at Everydayhero. If you have any problems with registration or setting up your page, please feel free to contact us.

Where does my fundraising go?

All the funds raised by taking part in the Big Walk will go to help PMH treat and support sick kids from across Perth and WA.

Will there be prizes again this year?

We know how hard you all work on your fundraising and we will be offering great prizes as well as exclusive rewards!

Are the public toilets along the route wheelchair accessible?

Yes, all public toilets along the route are wheelchair accessible.
