RSPCA - The Great Migration

Home > Brisbane > Walks | Animals and Wildlife | Community Events
by B Walkin (subscribe)
With a heap of writing experience under his belt, "B Walkin" resides in Brisbane and has published his first book.
The RSPCA is moving its Queensland headquarters from Fairfield to Wacol, and to celebrate the occasion, is inviting you to be part of The Great Migration.

You can have the chance to be part of 400 walkers making a difference, by raising awareness for the work that RSPCA does amongst the community. By fundraising as a group, you will be able to collaborate with the RSPCA Inspectorate Team, receive an exclusive preview into the new facility at Wacol, and also mark the occasion by being granted your very own engraved paver to acknowledge your contribution as a founding supporter. This is a great opportunity to be directly involved with the RSPCA, get some much needed exercise and also have a fun time being rewarded for your efforts. If you are a lover of animals, this is all the more reason to get involved.

So how does it work? First off, you need to call your mates and form a group of no more than four members. Then, all your group has to do is fill out the registration form and pay the registration fee and then you can set up your own 'Everyday Hero' fully customisable online fundraising page (this can all be done online via the website). On the day of the walk, you and your team will be one of hundreds of other walkers who will be participating in The Great Migration, and the RSPCA team will be there with you along the way.

Of course, after all the hard effort of organising, fundraising, and walking, you will be rewarded upon completion of the walk at the Recovery Party, where there will be food, entertainment and most importantly, a behind-the-scenes look at the new campus, plus a chance to make your mark as a founding supporter at the new Wacol headquaters with your very own engraved paver (please note that places are limited so to avoid disappointment, register your group as soon as possible).

The new Animal Care campus at Wacol will help 350 000 people, care for 50 000 animals, and receive 100 000 visitors each year. RSPCA Queensland, apart from their headquarters, runs another nine shelters, 12 bargain barns, six volunteer branches and four friend groups throughout the state. So to be part of seeing RSPCA continue its work in its new and improved facility at Wacol, grab your friends and sign up for The Great Migration. For further details, please visit the website.

If for some reason you cannot participate in The Great Migration on the day, there are plenty of ways to still be involved in the lead up to the event. You can support a friend or group by donating online via their 'Everyday Hero' page, spread the word about The Great Migration and those involved, or even raise money for your friends or a group you know that is involved in The Great Migration. Whatever way you can contribute to making this event a success is greatly appreciated. For more information, please visit the website.
