Olivia's Walk for Wellness

Walk for Wellness raises nearly $350,000

Walk for Wellness looked a little different this year, while walkers couldn’t stroll together, they united for the same great cause. 

Hundreds hit the pavement from around the world on Sunday 26 September for the virtual event on Dame Olivia Newton-John's 73rd birthday. 

The event raised nearly $350,000 which will fund evidence-based wellness therapies at the ONJ Centre that have been proven to help reduce the side effects of cancer treatment and help people cope better during their cancer journey.

"Wellness activities such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation and massage have been very important to me and I feel they have really helped me on my journey. That’s why I want everyone to have this additional support." Dame Olivia Newton-John AC DBE 

"With everything going on in the world, it was heartening to see so many people fundraising and supporting people with cancer," Austin Health Foundation Director, Debbie Shiell, says.
