Please join us for the 10th Anniversary Queensland Legal Walk!
On 16 May 2017 communities across Queensland will again walk together to raise funds for LawRight (formerly known as QPILCH) and celebrate the legal profession’s commitment to ensuring all Queenslanders have access to the legal system.
The Walk will commence simultaneously at 7.00am in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Bundaberg and the Sunshine Coast as part of National Law Week.
In Brisbane, the Walk will start and finish at the Queen Elizabeth II Court Complex and follow a 5km route along both sides of the Brisbane River. The Honourable Chief Justice Catherine Holmes will again present ‘Justice Cups’ to the top individual and team fundraisers. Walkers will also recieve a complimentary breakfast with the event concluding at approximately 8.30 am.
The fundraising target for this year’s Walk is $200,000 and it is expected that every registered Walker will raise or donate a minimum of $200 to directly help the most disadvantaged in our community – those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, young people transitioning from state care, people with mental illness, refugees and self-represented litigants. Your fundraising efforts will help LawRight continue to assist these vulnerable individuals and help remove the barriers to justice that reinforce poverty and exclusion.
If you are unable to join the walk you can make a donation here.
Early bird registration (before 30 April 2017) is just $30 per adult and $20 for students. If you would like to register a team of walkers please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at the 2017 Queensland Legal Walk !
