1M Walking for the Love of Earth, in Memory of Tara Hunt 2023
WALK WITH US FOR THE LOVE OF EARTH
On Sunday October 15th 2023, will you join our annual coastal walk in Sydney to raise money for the 1 Million Women Tara Hunt Fellowship and in loving memory of Tara Hunt?
Or if you can't join our Sydney walk, it would mean the world to us if you could still join us by Walking Where You Are.
Tara was the Co-CEO of 1 Million Women. We lost her beautiful soul on May 28th, 2017. Tara loved walking in nature, and she really believed that this was the key to saving the planet. Connecting with nature and finding that love for it is what makes us so passionate about protecting it.
If you knew our beautiful Tara this walk is a special time to embrace what she loved to do. And if you didn’t know Tara, please come walk with us to share the day and to connect with Mother Earth.
WE CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE THE DAY WITH YOU.

About Tara Hunt and the Fellowship
Tara Hunt was Co -CEO and a director of 1 Million Women. She was also a philanthropist. A special kind of philanthropist, a hands-on type who gave money but also gave herself. We lost her beautiful soul to cancer on the 28th of May, 2017. Strong and passionate, Tara never stopped believing in the power of women to change the world. She worked tirelessly to mobilise everyone she could in the fight against climate change.
The Tara Hunt Fellowship is to honour Tara and to help others discover their connection and love for our earth. We started up the Tara Hunt Fellowship in her memory.
Tara talked a lot about this fellowship before she passed away and it has been made possible through the generous donations from her friends, family and the 1 Million Women community.
Applications for the 1 Million Women Tara Hunt Fellowship are opening soon for 2024.
We hope you will join us.
A million thanks to Tara's girlfriends Colleen, Genevieve, Sally and Kim for bringing this walk to life. Their vision is it becomes an annual walk in memory of our beautiful Tara and her love of this planet and a time to reflect on our relationship with Mother Earth.
Tara Hunt, 12 Oct 1962 - 28 May 2017
'There is so much power in what we are doing - creating a mass movement of women and girls globally who are fighting climate change through their everyday actions and decisions.' - Tara Hunt
