The Long Walk Trust is a charity inspired by Essendon champion Michael Long’s walk to Canberra to get the lives of Indigenous people back on the national agenda. The charity works for Indigenous wellbeing and raises funds to support programs that improve conditions for Indigenous Australians by:

- Raising awareness of Indigenous culture and people

- Promoting leadership development and Indigenous leaders who strengthen culture and improve conditions for their community

As part of the partnership, Essendon Football Club’s administration centre at Windy Hill is now home to the head office of The Long Walk and its Project Manager, Kim Kruger. This position is jointly funded by the Essendon Football Club and The Long Walk.

The annual commemoration of The Long Walk is now held on the same day as Essendon's Dreamtime at the G clash with Richmond, the highlight of the AFL’s Indigenous round. The Long Walk also holds an annual Women's Luncheon and supports four Indigenous leadership programs.
