1.5km accessible loop along the Noosa River on Gympie Terrace

Registration from 6am and walk with us from 6.30am to 8:30am

Over 4 million people in Australia are living with some form of disability.

That’s 1 in 5 people!

Walk in Wings by Sunshine Butterflies proudly brought to you by Cérge ‘Your Digital Concierge’ is an all-inclusive walk to celebrate all abilities in our community.

Our Vision

Walk in Wings by Sunshine Butterflies is an all-inclusive accessible 1.5km walk along the Noosa River which aims to celebrate all abilities in our community.

In 2021 we will be holding the inaugural Walk in Wings. This event is designed to promote whole community inclusivity and will unite schools, community & sporting groups, businesses, and the general public from all walks of life.

Walkers will create a kaleidoscope of colour as they embrace the playfulness of life & importance of creating an all-inclusive community in their colourful butterfly wings or in purple.

We invite you to join us in breaking down barriers and elevating awareness of our neighbours and friends living with disability.

Together we can create an inclusive and accepting community for all.

Our Mission

One of the first barriers that people living with a disability face are the attitudes and mindset of others.

These barriers include stereotyping and usually assuming that people living with a disability have a poor and unhealthy quality of life. This is usually because of a lack of community understanding. Yet, in reality, people with disabilities are like everyone else, we all have our strengths and our weaknesses.

Sunshine Butterflies ‘Walk in Wings’ focuses on creating community awareness and celebrating the wonderful and different abilities that each and every one of us has.

The ‘Walk in Wings’ event will be an annual event which will bring the community together to break down the social and physical barriers that people living with disability face daily. Together, lets ‘Walk in Wings’ and create awareness of and celebrate people of all abilities in the community.

Get your friend and family together to design your unique set of wings for our walk. Your wings will bring a kaledescope of colour and create an all inclusive community event.
