Put Your Foot Down Perth – an important message for our supporters

The Put Your Foot Down Perth walk, usually held at the picturesque Sir James Mitchell Park, sees the local community unite annually to raise much needed awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer.

This year, due to the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we will be changing the format of the walk to ensure the health and safety of all our walk participants, volunteers and partners, and this is of paramount importance.

You can still participate in 2020

We understand the positive impact the walks have on our community and although the format for some walks has changed in 2020, you can still participate and help make an impact where ever you are in Australia.

The #PutYourFootDownSolo is a national campaign that asks our supporters in Perth to track how far they walk between 29 March to 27 April, dressing passionately in purple and taking your own walk, with safe distance from others, around your local park, beach or neighbourhood.

Help us turn #Perthpurple for pancreatic cancer.
