Families, children and the elderly participated in the 4-km walk through the International Regatta Centre, Penrith, in support of the new Nepean Hospital Redevelopment Project and the Chappell Foundation, which provides essential support for homeless youths. Among the chief guest walkers were Hon. Geoffrey Lee, Liberal MP for Parramatta; Mr Darshak Mehta, patron of the Chappell Foundation; Mr Stuart MacGill, Ex-Cricketer for Australia and Member of the Chappell Foundation; and Mr Paul Summers, Executive Consultant for the Nepean Hospital Project.

Addressing the walkers, Priyachintan Swami said that the tradition of walking for the good of others began in the Swaminarayan Sampradaya over 200 years ago with the divine pilgrimage of Nilkanth Varni, who walked for seven years across India to inspire spiritual seekers and help people in the community.
