✅ Love having fun with family, friends, and workmates?

✅ Love doing something healthy outdoors?

✅ Love supporting a great cause in your local community?


MarchMingle is an exciting new 7 km fundraising walk to bring the community together and raise money for our community food pantries. We’re aiming to raise $110,000 to help Canberra families who are hurting with the increased cost of housing, utilities, and groceries – people who never thought they’d need help.

So, get your runners on and let’s walk together for a great cause!

This intercultural event is a great opportunity to get outdoors, dress in your national colours, share cultures, and make new friends. Fundraise with your family, friends, and workmates. There’ll be prizes just for taking part. Enjoy the day with lots of colour and fun! See you there!

The Communities at Work MarchMingle walks form two of the seven walks in the Aussie Peace Walk.


10am, Saturday 23 or Sunday 24 March 2024 (two different 7 km walks)


Start at Lennox Gardens, Canberra Nara Peace Park, Flynn Drive, Yarralumla


One walk: $15 per person. Two walks: $25 per person  (Late entry fee if registering after 10 March 2024.)


‘Say G’Day’! Celebrate your culture. Wear your national colours. Carry a flag. Meet others and share stories.We hope to see lots of colour and smiles!


Celebrate our cultures, do something healthy, have fun with friends, and fundraise to help us stock our community food pantries for Canberra families struggling to pay for food and bills.

Walk in MarchMingle and Help Families in Need

With the increasing cost of living, many Canberra families are hurting. Some never expected they’d need help. Like Lydia’s family.

Lydia and her husband worked hard to save for a home. Just two months after moving in, Lydia’s husband lost his job.

With no income and a young family to feed, they frantically applied for jobs, but time was running out. Watch Lydias story below.
