What a night!
On Saturday 3 December, Walking Stars 2022 lit up the night sky at Melbourne’s Kings Domain.
More than 1190 people walked 18km and raised more than $270,664 to support the 34,000 Victorians who are diagnosed with cancer each year.

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.”
Every dollar raised gives hope for a cancer free future.
When you take part in Walking Stars, you’re funding life-saving cancer treatments, prevention programs, and support services, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
