Sun 10th Dec 11am Speers Point Park, Lake Macquarie

We need 1,500 people to walk or roll with us and support kids living with a disability this Christmas!

Join Newcastle Knights player Nathan Ross, grab the family and come along to the Variety Xmas Walk to help give a fair go to Aussie kids in need this Christmas. There will be mist machines, Jingle Bellies, Onstage entertainment, Face painting, Sausage Sizzle and plenty of on route entertainment.

A great day out with festive entertainment for the whole family, food and drinks in the Xmas Village, and a chance to make a difference to kids in need. We’ll provide the Santa hat and all you need to do is wear anything red ( shirt, shoes, anything!)  and run, roll or stroll the fully accessible 5km walk.

The Variety Xmas Walk will start from Speers Point Park to Warners Bay and back to finish at the Lake Mac Carols. There will be free entry into the Speers Point Swim Centre – why not cool off and get ready for the carols!

Prizes for fancy dress and best dressed wheels ( pram, or wheelchair ) so get your Christmas red on!
