ADSA Walk volunteers, supporters, friends and family, and everyone interested in this lifesaving event,
Like so many important community events COVID19 stay safe rules and medical advice are that there can be no ADSA Walk in 2020.
Please everyone stay safe. Read on to learn more about the ADSA Walk and to view the galleries and stories from previous Walks.
The ADSA Walk is both a mesothelioma walk and an asbestos walk and is the short name for the Asbestos Diseases Society of Australia Walk for Research and Awareness an event to raise funds for mesothelioma research and promote asbestos awareness.
The ADSA Walk started in 2012 with the ADSA Wittenoom Childrens’ Walk from Kalgoorlie to Perth. Since then we have covered the distance from Dunsborough to Perth ADSA Walk 2013, Pemberton to Perth ADSA Walk 2014, Albany to Perth ADSA Walk 2015, Geraldton to Perth ADSA Walk 2016, Merredin to Perth ADSA Walk 2017, Wave Rock, Hyden to Perth ADSA Walk 2018, and Augusta to Perth ADSA Walk 2019.
