"I've run for many causes around the world, all of them worthwhile, but none more important than this. The Run for the Voice is about equality, dignity and hope for a better future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
This is a 6-month journey where I will average around 80 km per day, every day, with no days off."
Run for The Voice with Pat Farmer is more than a personal quest; it will be an opportunity for people across Australia and around the world to witness the unfolding events on the ground. With a film crew capturing the essence of each day, and constant updates on social media and their official website, this courageous feat will resonate with individuals from all walks of life. Through the lens of this incredible journey, the beauty of the land and the strength of the human spirit will be revealed.
This run spans an astonishing 14,400 km, commencing in Hobart, Tasmania on April 17, 2023, and culminating 178 days later at the iconic Uluru. The primary aim of this monumental undertaking is to raise awareness about the urgent need for First Nations peoples to have a direct Voice in parliament.
