Taking steps to end domestic violence
The Sydney White Ribbon Walk raises awareness about domestic violence and asks men to stand up and say no to violence against women.
The annual Walk is organised by NSW Police Eastern Beaches Local Area Command and Randwick City Council.
When and where
The White Ribbon Walk is held on Friday 25 November 2016 between 7.15am and 9am, from High Cross Park to Grant Reserve, Coogee.
Parking is available at the Dolphin Street car park at Coogee. A shuttle bus service will operate from the car park to High Cross Park from 6.45am. This will be a continuous round trip until 7.25am.
Following the BBQ Breakfast at Grant Reserve, the Community Bus will transport participants back to High Cross Park via the Dolphin Street car park. This will assist participants who park at the Dolphin Street Car Park and near High Cross Park.
The walk commences at 7.30am from High Cross Park, corner of Avoca Street and Coogee Bay Road, Randwick.
