The Wellness Walk and Research Run is an annual fun run and walk (5 and 10 km) raising awareness and vital funds for Cancer Research and Wellness programs at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre. .

‘I am delighted to be joining you in Oz this September to help raise vital funds for the ONJ Centre. I hope you can all join me’ said Olivia Newton-John OA.

The event will be held on Sunday 17 September at La Trobe University’s Bundoora campus– the Walk and Run will utilise the 238-hectare ring road and campus surrounds. As the official University and Research Partner for the event in 2017, Vice Chancellor Professor John Dewar said ‘La Trobe University is thrilled to once again support, and provide the venue for, such a wonderful and worthy community event’. Last year’s Wellness Walk and Research Run attracted more than 3,000 participants and we hope to see an even bigger turnout this year’.

Now into its fifth year, the Wellness Walk and Research Run is the only event of its kind in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne.

A function will be held at 10.00am in the Chancellery, Level 3, David Myers Building at La Trobe University’s Bundoora campus to mark the occasion. Join Olivia Newton-John, and other profile ambassadors including Peter Hitchener from Channel 9 News, as we remember and support those who lives have been touched by cancer.

Registrations for the Wellness Walk and Research Run open on 18 May 2017.

Together lets help people to live better with cancer and defeat it.
