The 2019 Walk ‘joined the dots’ by doing the distance from Augusta to Dunsborough & Perth via Cape Leeuwin, Margaret River, Cowaramup, Wild Wood, Cape Naturaliste, Dunsborough, Busselton, and Perth. We are ‘joining the dots’ as the ADSA Walk Team walked from Dunsborough to Perth in 2013 and we took the opportunity in 2019 to build on that awesome effort.
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, and Wave Rock, Hyden to Perth ADSA Walk 2018.
