What is Walk in Her Shoes?

Walk in Her Shoes is a flexible walking and running challenge, raising funds for CARE Australia’s work overseas.

Thank you to the thousands of Australians who took part from 10 to 23 October 2016. Whether you walked 100km over two weeks, or ran 25km in a day, you’ve all helped improve the lives of women and girls living in poverty.

There’s still time to make a difference by making a donation or sponsoring a friend today.

Why take the challenge?

Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6km every day to collect water for their families.

By walking (or running) in their shoes from 10-23 October 2016, you have helped reduce the distance women and girls have to walk by providing clean water and nutritious food close to home. This means girls can spend more time in school, women can earn an income and together they can help their communities step out of poverty.

Why Walk or Run?

What do I need to do?

Taking part is easy – Sign up, ask your family and friends to sponsor you, then walk or run your chosen distance!


The 2016 Walk in Her Shoes challenge is now over.

Register your interest for the 2017 challenge.


Money raised helps provide clean water closer to home.

Your personal fundraising page will remain open until 6 November 2016.


Participants walked or ran from 10-23 October.
