About Walk The Wall
About Walk the Wall
David Gotts, founder of International China Concern (ICC), initiated Walk the Wall, an international fundraising walkathon in 2007 with the aim to change the lives of abandoned children with disabilities. By walking the distance of the Great Wall, you will be joining the collective efforts of all the participants, bringing love, hope and opportunity to the most vulnerable children in China.
Each year, ICC organises a series of Walk the Wall that take place around the world. The walks can be up to 10 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 children and young adults with disabilities 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 for abandoned and disabled children and young adults in China, as well as families raising children with disabilities 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 21,196 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 and young adults in China overcome the many challenges they face.

ICC was founded in 1993 by David Gotts after seeing firsthand in China the suffering of Chinese children with disabilities, who had been abandoned and left without hope in desperate conditions.
In the beginning, ICC sent Short-Term Teams to China to provide care in government welfare centres. Later, we established permanent locations which provide full-time family-style care for children in Changsha and Hengyang in Hunan Province.
Today, ICC has offices in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. If you want to know more about ICC, please visit our website.
