Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some of the questions you might have

1Is there a registration fee?

This year there will be no registration fee.

In order to be part of the Walk, we ask that every adult who registers makes a gift from their heart. These donations will help to ensure that each patient and their family receive care that is individual, meaningful, compassionate and loving. Children under 16 are not expected to make a gift.

We would love you to go one step further, to do something extra special, and fundraise amongst your friends, family and colleagues. Please consider asking them to support you taking part in the walk.

2How do I register?
It is easy to sign up online. Simply click on the ‘Register Now’ button below. If you need help registering please call Phoebe or Lorna on 08 8239 0119 (during business hours) and we can talk you through the process.
3What do I get when I register?
You will receive a Registration Pack including your heart/s, collection box and an Event & Fundraising Guide. We will post this pack to you.
4When can I create my fundraising page?

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, thank you. 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 call Phoebe or Lorna on 08 8239 0119 during business hours or email reception@marypotter.org.au.

A volunteer will then proudly wear a heart on their sleeve in honour of your loved one and we will send you a photo after the event.
