5What do I do if I want to register a group of more than 10 people but the registration page doesn’t let me?
Firstly, let us say that it is really special that you are walking as part of such a large team. The easiest way for us to help is for you to send an email to reception@marypotter.org.au and we’ll contact you or call Jess H or Lorna on (08) 8239 0119 during business hours.

7How does the ‘Walk for Me’ option work?
This option is for those who can’t attend the walk, but would like to participate. Students from Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College will walk for you wearing a heart with your loved one’s name on her sleeve. A donation to 'Walk for Me' is all that is needed.
8How long does the walk take?
Everyone can choose to take part at their own pace. The 7km walk will generally take over an hour and the 3km walk may take 30-45 minutes – but the pace is your choice.
9What should I wear to Walk for Love?
We suggest keeping an eye on the weather and dressing appropriately for either a cooler or warmer day. And, of course comfortable walking shoes!

A Walk for Love t-shirt is a great option and can be purchased online or over the phone on (08) 8239 0119. $20 Adult and $10 Child t-shirts are available in various sizes (but stocks are limited so get in early).
10Will there be food and drinks?
There will be complimentary water stations around the walk route. Coffee, along with a fundraising cake stall and sausage sizzle will be available for purchase at Carclew.
11Can I bring my dog?
Yes, you sure can! We just ask that you keep your dog on a lead at all times.
12What if it rains?
The event has never been cancelled because of rain – just ensure you wear appropriate clothing. In the event of inclement weather (thunder & lightening) cancellation information will be posted on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/themarypotterfoundation.
