Global Challenge

The Global Challenge is On!!


Launch Day Walk

We had a great walk at lunchtime on Day 1 of the Global Challenge, with over 100 people meeting at four points across campus and walking to Coogee Beach, Centennial Park and the Fred Hollows Reserve. Check out the photos here.

More walks will be scheduled during the course of the Challenge, with all walks taking approxminately 1 hour for a round trip.

Due to popular demand, we have ordered more Global Challenge t-shirts! Team Captains get a free t-shirt for taking on the role. For everyone else, t-shirts are $5. Please click here to order your t-shirt. 

T-shirts will be available for collection on: Thursday 1 June between 1pm – 3pm from Level 1, HR Reception in The Chancellery. If you will be collecting t-shirts for your whole team/department/school/faculty, please come with a list of the team names, team members and their t-shirt sizes. T-shirts for UNSW Canberra participants have been sent to Vaish Muralidharan. Please contact her to arrange collection of the t-shirts.

All money raised by sale of the t-shirts will go towards our end of Global Challenge Celebration in October. 


Remember to put your pedometers on as soon as you get up in the morning - every step counts!
