The 9th Annual Mercy Walk for Women
Join us for the 9th Mercy Walk for Women being held online and across the Canberra Region over September 2021.
Every woman who is pregnant or parenting a baby should be surrounded with the support she needs.
One of the main supports is time. Karinya House invests time to support each individual woman we walk alongside.
We invite you to walk 23 kilometres during September and share with the Karinya Village photos of you and your walking trails. You might choose to walk the 23 kilometres across the month or all in one go on 26 September 2021 – the date nominated for this year’s walk (pre-Covid!).
Update 1/10/2021: Total Funds Raised – an amazing and awesome $13,069!!
Funds raised directly support individually co-designed services for women who are pregnant or early parenting. Together, we are their village.
The Boorowa based organisers of the Mercy Walk for Women have considered holding the walk again in real time, however organising a covid-safe plan proved a step too difficult, given the ‘must have, country style’ morning tea, as well as the post walk celebrations and the port-a-loo arrangements. The decision was made to again hold the 2021 Mercy Walk online.
Your registration for this event is a tax deductible donation. You will also be able to seek sponsorship donations as well. You can register on line as an individual. Teams can also be established. This year, rather than having a fixed registration fee, we suggest as you register, you might make an initial donation of $50 per individual or whatever you may be able to afford in these challenging times. This will be a tax deductible donation.
All the information is on the Event Platform. Registrations for the 2021 Mercy Walk are now open – online! Go to the link below and check out the FAQs for more information on how to register or sponsor a walker.
The 2020 event was supported by 105 participants raising $14,621. This total was matched in full by our Corporate Partners! We would love each one of you, and beyond, to join us on the 2021 Mercy Walk for Women. All funds raised through the 2021 Mercy Walk will be matched as part of the Double Up Appeal running concurrently through September.
Remember to share your images of your walking trails over September 2020 with us via our social media pages, and the event page on Facebook.
If you simply want to support this event by making a donation to Karinya House … you can Donate Here.
At Karinya House, we are privileged to journey with women and children in a very profound way and personally share part of their lives for a while. In whichever way you “count your steps”, every step will matter.
At Karinya, we provide intensive space and time, focused on being with an individual for the long term, in whatever way they need, to build a the future they themselves envision. The cost of providing an individual woman a tailored, comprehensive continuum of care, is in the human relationships and connections we provide. Walk with us on this journey. Your donation can give the gift of time, space, hope and new horizons.
Join us this September – recognising women! We would love to see over 100 walkers again.
