After last year’s postponement, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter is very happy to be hosting its ninth Byron Coastal Charity Walk on Saturday, May 22.

Over 600 entrants have already registered for 2021 to take part in this iconic trek down the beautiful coastline from Byron Bay to Ballina.

Regional Marketing Manager for the Rescue Helicopter, Zeke Huish said that with just under one month till the Walk, now is the time to gather your friends to take on the challenge of either the 12km distance to Broken Head, the 24km to Lennox Head, or the 36km all the way to Ballina.

‘The Service is hoping to have over 1,000 people take part and invites anyone who might be interested to help as a volunteer on the day at a checkpoint, to visit the event website to register their interest.

‘The Walk is not a race, so it is a very social and fun way to support the Rescue Helicopter. All proceeds directly support the Lismore-based operation.’
