The Long Walk

Essendon Football Club is proud to be a founding supporter of The Long Walk, a charity inspired by Essendon Legend Michael Long’s walk to Canberra to get the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people back on the national agenda.

The Long Walk raises awareness to improve and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island health, wellbeing and life opportunities.

The charity achieves this through its awareness raising events and its education programs Walk the Talk and The Long Walk Cultural Exchange.

The 2017 Long Walk Women's Luncheon

The women's is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women’s leadership and achievement initiated by the women who walked with Michael Long to Canberra.

Held every year in Melbourne since 2005, the luncheon brings together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal women and supportive men to celebrate and showcase the talents and amazing work of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people.

Funds raised through the 2017 Women's Luncheon will go towards the delivery of The Long Walk's cultural and educational programs in 2018.

The Long Walk is a charity inspired by Michael Long's walk to Canberra to get the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people back on the national agenda. The charity promotes and celebrates Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures, whilst providing meaningful opportunities for all Australians to come together in the spirit of Reconciliation and develops and empowers our young people and communities.

Over its twelve year history, The Women’s Luncheon has developed into a meaningful celebration which draws together distinct groups to offer a unique reconciliation experience.
