Walk for Trees 2023

Our two Australian coordinators, Mark Allaway and Jill Lancashire are planning a charity walk for the benefit of the Global Tree Initiative! The event is called “Walk for the Trees 2023”.

Mark is motivated and committed to walk for four days, and cover a total distance of around 90 Kilometers! Mark already has his first sponsor. He told us that “Jill has promised me $1 per Kilometer if I survive!”

Have a look at the route planned for the walk:

Day Mode Start Destination Distance Estimate time @3kms per hour
1 Train Elsternwick Diggers Rest 48kms
1 Walk Diggers Rest Gisborne 28.5kms 9 hrs
2 Walk Gisborne Woodend via Macedon 18.6 kms 6 hrs
3 Walk Woodend Kyneton via Cobb and Co Rd 17.3 kms 6 hrs
4 Walk Kyneton Redesdale 26kms 8 hrs

So far, Mark will be accompanied by a fellow walker, Ken Fox, and Jill Lancashire, driving the support vehicle. Ken is also part of our Australian tree-planting community.

If you want to pledge any amount per Kilometer or make a donation to this event, please get in touch with Mark and Jill and ask them how to get involved. Or, join the walk and accompany Mark on this adventure!
