Walk for Love 2020

Sadly, given the current COVID-19 situation, the Board of The Mary Potter Foundation has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Walk for Love event.

This is unprecedented.  We are so disappointed to not be gathering together this year to celebrate the lives of our very special loved ones who we miss every day. But we are currently in unprecedented times. In following medical and government advice, this is the right thing to do.

Last year, we had over 800 people of all age groups come together to honour & remember their loved ones. In the current COVID-19 situation, we have a duty of care to everybody attending.  This unfortunate and difficult step is to protect everyone’s health and safety - particularly the elderly and vulnerable.

We start planning for this event 6 months in advance. It is our major fundraiser each year.  We know exactly what this day means to everyone who attends, and taking the decision to cancel the event has been very hard indeed.

However, you can still make a difference!  We rely on the Walk for Love to ensure we can provide Mary Potter Care to patients and families in the Hospice over the winter months. Those funds are absolutely vital.

We only ever ask for a gift from your heart to register for the event.

In lieu of Walking for Love this year, if you would still like to donate that gift, or fundraise to help support the Hospice, you can.

By clicking on the pink heart above: ‘Please Donate’,  you can then select ‘Give Once’. On the donation page you can direct your gift to ‘Walk for Love’. There is no set amount, only a gift of your own choosing and we will forward you a receipt.

We are disappointed not to be getting together this year to honour the lives and memories of our loved ones. However, your health and well-being – and that of everyone involved in the event - must be our priority.

We are so grateful for the support you give us each year on this special day. We know what it means to so many people – and really hope to see you at the Walk for Love in 2021.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to call Morgan or Lorna at the Foundation office on 08 8239 0119, or email lorna.riddle@marypotter.org.au.
