About Walk The Wall
About Walk the Wall
Each year, International China Concern (ICC) organises a series of walk-a-thons called Walk the Wall that take place around the world. The walks can be up to10 km long and participants sign up, get sponsors/donors to support them, and walk. Every walker is raising much needed funds to care for abandoned and disabled children in China.
Join the Global Movement to Give Life and End Abandonment
Walk the Wall is a global movement that comes together throughout the year to raise money to care for the many abandoned and disabled children in China, and provide families with disabled children the support they need so that abandonment isn’t their only option.
Since 2007, supporters around the world have walked thousands of kilometres, figuratively covering the Great Wall of China’s 8,850 km many times over. When you ask family and friends to sponsor your walk with ICC in your city, each dollar you raise will help abandoned children in China overcome the many challenges they face.
All of the money raised through Walk the Wall is used to provide life-changing services for children within our direct care, the care of partners we work with or in the care of their parents within the community. You will be walking to support funding for our Chinese nannies that provide love and nurture, our therapy programmes that see children develop towards their personal goals and provision of education or vocational training, empowering them for their futures.
There are walks happening around the world, with some countries holding multiple walks across different locations.
