The Western Health Foundation

The Western Health Foundation is pleased to announce the west’s biggest community fun run, WalkWest, is back on Sunday 25 March 2018 at Footscray Park. Click here to view the flyer.

This annual event attracts over 1000 participants each year and comprises of a 2km, 5km and 10km walk or run along the picturesque Maribyrnong River. All funds raised from WalkWest help Western Health improve healthcare delivery to the people of Melbourne’s west.

While event participants take to the WalkWest route, those who remain in the WalkWest Village will have plenty of things to do to keep themselves entertained, including a live DJ, children’s activities, massage therapy and a large selection of delicious food and beverages to choose from.

We are calling on all local schools to join us for this fantastic community event, to help raise funds for the new Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital, which is currently under construction at Sunshine.

Funds raised from the event will help fund an Interactive Wall for families to use while they are in the waiting room in the Children’s Clinic. This will assist in creating a child-friendly, anxiety-free environment for the clinic, where patients will feel safe and welcomed. The waiting room plays a large part in the patient experience, as it is located in the heart of the facility. Part of that care is to keep patients and families engaged, entertained, relaxed and build a pleasant transition to the clinical examination.

This event is a great opportunity for everyone to come together for a fantastic community event and to help support this important new facility for the families of Melbourne’s west.

There will be some great prizes up for grabs for the highest fundraising school and the school with the highest participation. Further details will be released in early 2018.

Early bird entries are now open for WalkWest 2018. Sign up before Sunday 25 February and pay just $15 per adult, while children 16 and under are free. To register, visit

If you would like further information about this event or how your school can sign up, please contact the Western Health Foundation team on 8345 7660 or
