Take part

Be part of the all-new Big Walk for PMH this year! You can walk on your own, or with your family and friends. You can get involved with your company – walk as a team, sponsor the event or donate a prize. Or you could choose to volunteer, either to help marshal the course or to help us provide the entertainment. If you can’t make it on the day, why not sponsor someone else who’s walking? Every dollar raised will make a big difference to sick kids in Princess Margaret Hospital, so get involved today.

How much does it cost?

Sign up as an individual or with the whole family! Register before the event itself and save money on registration fees.

Our fees cover the cost of putting on the Big Walk event. All the money you raise will go directly towards supporting Princess Margaret Hospital.

What’s new

We’ve planned a host of fun new activities you can complete along both the 6km and 15km routes. Leap through a rainbow sea of bubbles, bust a move at the Jungle Body dance party, or swing those hips at the Happy Hula-Hooping station.
