Olivia’s Walk for Wellness 2024 launches

Today we launched the 11th annual Olivia’s Walk for Wellness, taking place on Sunday 6 October 2024 at Alexandra Gardens.  

Donors, patients, staff and Tottie Goldsmith, Olivia’s niece and ONJ Centre Good Will Ambassador, attended the colourful launch event at the ONJ Centre, which was covered by a range of media outlets.  

Leaning into our new theme of Let’s Get Physical, walkers this year are encouraged to don their best 80’s gear and help us to support those with cancer to access wellness services and honour Dame Olivia Newton-John AC DBE.  

The annual walk supports cancer patients accessing free, evidence-based wellness therapies at the ONJ Centre to support their cancer treatment. These programs include exercise, massage, acupuncture, music and art therapy, and more, and have been proven to alleviate the side effects of cancer treatment, such as pain, nausea and fatigue.

In the past year, more than 6000 people took part in wellness programs at the ONJ Centre and more than 5000 walked through the doors of our beautiful Wellness Centre. These wellness programs are purely funded by donations, to bring love and light to people with cancer, or as Olivia put it, “help people with cancer thrive". 

Tickets are now on sale
