Katy Gallagher and Glenys Beauchamp are putting out the call for people to joining the Walk and Play fund raising event to help raise money for Boundless Canberra.

The walk will take place on the 30th of August at Lake Burley Griffin and money raised will go towards building an all abilities playground in the ACT.

“The Boundless Playground is going to be a fantastic addition to the already popular space surrounding Lake Burley Griffin and will allow all children, even those with a disability, the chance to play in a safe environment,” the Chief Minister said.

“I am calling on Canberrans to get behind this project and to don their walking shoes and join me and the public servants who have already registered to raise much needed funds to deliver this project.”

Boundless Canberra will be an all abilities playground located in the heart of the city along the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. It will allow children all physical abilities to play together. The ACT Government is supporting Boundless Canberra as a Centenary of Canberra initiative.

Walk and Play will lead off at 7.15am on Friday 30 August and will head around the central basin in an anticlockwise direction.

The walk will be approximately 5km long and it is aimed for walkers to be off the course by 8.30am. The walk will be followed by a light breakfast.
