the b kinder walk

What is the walk for a kinder world about?

Walk for a kinder world is about walking with purpose. The aim is to spread kindness while participating in a walk around the world together whilst raising money to donate kindness resources to children in disadvantaged schools.

How far do I walk?

You can take a leisurely stroll or commit to a long distance challenge, just make sure it is realistic and you are fit enough to cover the distance. Did you know, the circumference of the world is 45, 075 KMs so anything you can contribute to starting that journey would be wonderful.

Are there other things I should be doing on my walk?

While you are on your walk you could help spread kindness.
• You could write and then leave a kindness card in someone’s postbox.

• You could purchase some sunflowers and then hand them to strangers as you walk.

• You could give compliments to strangers as you pass them by.

• You could Just smile at someone to make their day.

Where can I walk?

You can walk anywhere you would like to as long as you adhere to all local rules and guidelines. Also, during these times, ensure you practice social distancing.

registration

How do I register?

You can register via the register button on the home page.

Do I register alone or can I create a team?

You can choose to walk independently or you can create and register a team. Teams are a great way of bringing friends, families and colleagues together. Connecting the first step to sharing kindness. Covid 19 means that walking all together in your team might not be safe and it might make social distancing difficult. Just make sure you follow your local regulations. This doesn’t mean your team can’t come up with ways to still walk in different locations at the same time. All your Team’s Kilometres can still be added together as part of our walk for a kinder world.

fitness tips

How do I get the most from my walk?

Walking is a low impact way to get fit but before you commence any exercise, please ensure that you get advice from a doctor and /or fitness instructor. It is imperative that any walk you undertake is done safely.

Due to COVID 19, it is essential that you follow the current federal, state and local government guidelines when exercising in public places. Currently the 1.5m social distancing rules are still in place but you will need to also consider how many people are allowed together at any one time. It may also be required that you wear a face-covering (mask). It would be advisable to carry hand sanitisers with you and don’t forget to take your own water bottle to stay hydrated.

If you are walking in public spaces, please ensure you are fit and well and if you do happen to cough or sneeze, remember to use your elbow and cover your mouth.
