AustCham Korea is pleased to partner with one of our long-standing CSR partners, the Eastern Social Welfare Society (ESWS)​, in holding an 'AustCham-ESWS Walkation' to raise funds to support single mothers.

Although arranging a group event is difficult given the Level 4 social distancing restrictions, we encourage you to sign up to the event individually or arrange to walk in groups of 2-4 at a time and place that suits you. The AustCham Korea Secretariat, CSR Committee and Board Members will be supporting the initiative and encouraging other members, companies, and families to join the event!

'WALKATION' is...a combination of the words, WALK and VACATION; it's a contactless fundraiser in which you can take part in whenever and wherever you want during your summer vacation (without having to meet people in person to participate in it).

While the walkation requires participants to walk 10,000 steps each, we are encouraging that we all work together in achieving a total collective amount of 8,925,196 steps, which is the equivalent of the distance between South Korea and Australia (6,801km).

Remember, the walkation doesn't have to be completed in one go and you have until September 30th to count your steps in total.

Key details:

  • The participation fee is KRW30,000 per person
  • All proceeds will go to ESWS projects and initiatives that support single mothers
  • There is no set course, just need to walk 10,000 steps (around 8 km)
  • Sign-up below to participate*
  • RSVP deadline extended to: September 26
  • Participation (walking) deadline: September 30
