ASUM Outreach Charity Walk

Join friends and colleagues for a good cause


Enjoy the fresh air and explore local sights with friends and colleagues at the ASUM Outreach Charity Walk, to be held in conjunction with the WFUMB Congress.


Let your #StepsForOutreach make a difference; by taking part in this walk, 100% of your entry fee donation will go to the ASUM Outreach charity and you will help contribute towards our vision for ASUM Outreach:


Bringing ultrasound to communities in need; to aid in early detection, diagnosis and management


ASUM Outreach exists to advance the use of medical diagnostic ultrasound for people living in rural and remote regions of Australia, New Zealand and some regional neighbours.


Cost is $25 (100% donated directly to Outreach). All registrants receive an ‘Outreach’ souvenir in recognition of your support.


Walk is guided through the streets of Melbourne on Sunday 8 September from 7am - 8am.
