Would you like to add fundraising a part of your walk experience?
On any Tasmanian Walking Company walk, you can fundraise for the Alannah & Madeline Foundation to help keep children free from violence and trauma. The Alannah & Madeline Foundation is a national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to keeping children and young people free from violence and trauma wherever they live, learn and play. We can help you turn your effort into a positive impact for children and young people who have experienced violence and trauma.
Register now, choose your fundraising target and set up your own fundraising page. Easy!
Once you’re set up, all you need to do is reach out to your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, teammates. Ask anyone with a love of children to sponsor your event (or even join you as part of a team).
Best of all, as you walk the distance, every dollar you raise will help children and young people live free from violence and trauma. You’ll help fund programs and services to make sure children are safe, protected and valued. Wherever they live, learn and play.
For fundraising support, please contact Claire Bonieux at the Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation
On 28 April 1996, Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, were tragically killed alongside their mother and 32 other people at Port Arthur in Tasmania.
One year later, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation was launched in the girls’ honour by their father, Walter Mikac AM and a small group of volunteers. They were driven by the belief that all children and young people should be able to live a happy and safe life, free from violence and trauma.
Today our mission continues through care, prevention and advocacy - from supporting children experiencing family violence to online bullying and fighting for the rights of young people everywhere. After 25 years, our fight continues. The challenges facing children and young people may have changed, but our mission has not.
We fight for their right to be safe, so their future is strong.
