The Long Road Cairns isn’t a race, but instead an opportunity to stretch your legs, chat to friends and meet new friends all while taking in the scenic beauty of the Cairns Esplanade – afterwards, you can rest and enjoy some acoustic music and a sausage sizzle, provided by the Lions Club of Cairns.
You can challenge yourself in the 10km walk or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Boardwalk .
1. Participants/teams can register for The Long Road Cairns online at http://www.thepyjamafoundation.com/upcoming-events/
2. Teams can register up to three people at a time (teams can be bigger but three is the maximum the system allows per application - just go back and register up to three as many times as needed and as the members join the team). All individuals walking must register to be covered by insurance. Payment is made separately so that each member can pay their $25 registration fee individually ($15 for children 3-15 years and free for children under 3).
3. To raise funds, teams/individuals can set up an online registration page through our website. They can do this now or once they have registered. This can be done as a team or individually. The way teams are approaching this is to each set up an individual fundraising page at
https://the-pyjama-foundation.giveeasy.org/fundraising_event/the-long-road/ and then the team captain sets up an additional Team Page. Individual team members can then join up to this page and this way their funds are all grouped under the Team Page. By setting up individual pages, this allows each member to push the page online via their own Facebook/Twitter (as well as send via email to their personal contacts) in addition to the Team Page, which would link up to their corporate Facebook page/Twitter account.
4. Our local theme this year is to 'Dress as your Favourite Book Character' - there will be a prize for the best dressed team/individual. If not in character, participants are encouraged to come dressed in their PJs or onesies. Teams wanting to promote their own corporate brand/community group/sporting group etc are encouraged/welcome to wear their uniforms or, if dressed in character, to bring along something else to promote the brand/group they represent (balloons on sticks or banners are a great method for capturing the attention of onlookers).
PLEASE NOTE: We have small The Pyjama Foundation cardboard collection boxes available for our fundraisers.
Cost to register: $25 per Adult, $15 per child aged 3-15 years, children under 3 free.
