Legs Out for Lymphoma

statement: event postponed

Statement from CEO Sharon Winton

RE: Legs Out for Lymphoma events

 

We have made the decision to postpone all Legs Out for Lymphoma awareness walks and events scheduled for April and May across Australia.

 

Nothing is more important to us than the health and wellbeing of our patients, your families and the broader community.

 

Given the high risk to public health currently posed by COVID-19, and keeping in mind that many who attend our events are in a higher-risk group, we know the decision to postpone our Legs Out for Lymphoma events is in the best interests of everyone.

 

We would like to extend a very big thank all to all our registered walkers and supporters and we will be looking forward to seeing everyone at a later date.

 

Please share this update with your friends, family and team members.

 

If anyone has any questions, please contact our Fundraising & Events team at fundraise@lymphoma.org.au.

 

Regards

Sharon Winton, CEO

About Legs Out 

Legs Out for Lymphoma is a fun community event where participants unite together and walk a short course (approx. 5km) to raise awareness and raise funds for specialist Lymphoma Care Nurses. By participating in one of our national walks, or by organising your own activity, challenge or event, you will help us place specialist Lymphoma Care Nurses around the country, who will help to take the fear out of a lymphoma diagnosis. 

Join us and help reach our goal to fund Lymphoma Care Nurses across Australia & unite together in the fight against Lymphoma! Get involved, get fit and get fundraising for this worthy cause. 

For further information, get in touch with us fundraise@lymphoma.org.au

Why you should walk with us

 

REGISTER TO GET YOUR LEGS OUT & walk WITH US    

"One on one contact with a specialist nurse gives you confidence in their experience and offers compassion for what you are dealing with every single day.

Lymphoma Australia needs our support - it is the only lymphoma exclusive charity available to patients and their families. I found this nurse service invaluable."

Can't make it to one of our events?

If you can't make one of our walks you can still participate virtually or set up your own event. Simply register as a 'virtual fundraiser' to complete as many KM's as you can and get your friends and family to sponsor you. 

Every dollar you raise will make a real difference.

If you want to set up your own event, please contact us fundraise@lymphoma.org.au
