Melbourne Marathon 3km Walk

Date: 14 October 2018

Walk the Walk, Start the Talk. To mark Anti-Poverty Week 2018, the Brotherhood is taking part in the Melbourne Marathon 3km walk.

People in our community seeking asylum are currently having their income support cut off by the Australian Government. Without support, thousands of people, including children, face destitution.

Join the Walk to raise funds for employment services that will help those in need secure a job.
Start the Talk to raise awareness of this issue in the community.
