Macquarie Park Business Community Walkathon 2023

The Macquarie Park Business Community Partnership Walkathon 2023

The Walkathon is back in 2023: a day where more than 500 local employees bring networking, engagement and FUN to the streets of Macquarie Park while making a difference to Early Childhood Literacy in the community they work-in.

Get your colleagues together: create teams, stride-out between the members of the Macquarie Park Business Community Partnership, and raise money for early childhood literacy; directly impacting the children – and the families – of the local government area of Ryde.

This year, we are aiming to reach an amazing goal of having 1000 children in Ryde receiving books each month via Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

As part of United Way Australia’s commitment to our program: Ready to Read, we manage the distribution of the Imagination Library for children aged 0 – 5 years in Macquarie Park; In addition, and working with local partners, we provide other wrap-around activities such as a weekly playgroup called “The Magic of Storytelling” and other unique early childhood learning opportunities.

The Walkathon will give you the chance to:

  • join other local businesses giving back to the community in which you work
  • raise funds for local children’s literacy
  • get to know your neighbourhood business district better
  • network with other businesses over a fun sausage-sizzle, and
  • have a fun afternoon out with your colleagues.

Plus: there’s no fitness requirement – only walk the distance you’d like to walk!
