Wayside Chapel's SUPER TEAM

Support our Long Walk Home with Wayside Chapel  

WAYSIDE CHAPEL'S SUPER TEAM. 

Join us and walk virtually with members of Wayside's community. 

Over the week of Saturday 2 to Friday 8 October 2021, we are walking 28km in the shoes of a person living on our streets in the Long Walk Home.

Every week, a person sleeping rough on our streets has to walk 28km to find shelter or a place to sleep.

Please sponsor my challenge to support the most vulnerable people in our community.

Every step we take and every dollar you help us raise will deliver love, support and assistance to those in crisis. Thank you.

Thank you to our Sponsors

Leon, Good luck on your walk. I wish I could join you, but I 'm in Hong Kong, and the Australian Government won't let me return for something as a trivial as a good cause!

It brightens my heart to know that there are good people like yourself Leon, willing to take on big challenges like this to help others, 2.8 or 28 doesn’t matter, the first step is the hardest, you’re showing more strength and conviction than most, including myself, well done Leon and best of luck.
