Why we walk

Walking Stars raise vital funds to help make sure that people facing cancer have the best possible support and treatment, and we need your help now more than ever.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on cancer research, and calls to our 13 11 20 support line have quadrupled.

Katherine, a mother of two, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2018. When she tested positive to COVID-19 while immune compromised and in remission in January 2022, she called Cancer Council’s 13 11 20 information and support line.

“The nurses are awesome," she said. “They’re easy to talk to and they help with almost any question you have.”

Fundraising is rewarding, not just for the feel-good factor, but also because we love to reward you for your efforts!

Earn these exclusive merhandise rewards including a water bottle, sweat band, t-shirt and bum bag. 

Plus be one of the first 500 people to register for the Kings Domain event to receive your free Walking Stars socks.
