Posted 05th December 2018

On a glorious sunny November 23rd, METL’s Kevin Hunt participated in the 8th annual White Ribbon Walk along with thousands of Sydneysiders who were all walking side by side to raise awareness of, and stand against, domestic violence.

The White Ribbon Walk kicked off from Randwick at 7:30am with representatives from a varied cross section of society. Within the crowds of participants were the NSW police commissioner, NRL team South Sydney Rabbitohs, high school students, Australian Defence Forces, State Emergency Services, and a large contingent of private citizens.

Roads were blocked in Sydney's eastern suburbs to allow the crowds passage down Coogee Bay Road to the ocean, with onlookers waving, cheering and ringing bells to the stream of walkers dressed in White Ribbon t-shirts passing them.

At Grant Reserve, Coogee the walkers were greeted with coffee, water and a breakfast bbq, with speeches being delivered by a number of notable people.
