THE LONG WALK

COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP

We are the 2019 event partner for the Long Walk.

This year’s Long Walk commemorated the 15th anniversary of Michael Long’s famous walk to Canberra, where he embarked on a 650km trek to visit then-prime minister John Howard to discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues.

The Long Walk Trust is a charity inspired by Essendon champion Michael Long’s walk to
Canberra to get the lives of Indigenous people back on the national agenda. The charity works for Indigenous wellbeing and raises funds to support programs that improve conditions for Indigenous Australians.
