SAHSSI 30 Story
SAHSSI 30 is a wonderful community event, now in its 4th year, which aims to raise awareness of women’s homelessness and domestic violence in the Shoalhaven while at the same time raising much needed funds for SAHSSI Shoalhaven.
The event is a wonderful opportunity to have fun, challenge yourself and walk/shuffle/jog/run the unique 30km round trip along the beautiful coastline of Jervis Bay. Participants are treated to some lovely refreshments at Iluka Beach Picnic Area to mark the halfway point.
SAHSSI 30 is a community-driven event that has grown out of one person’s vision to make a positive change for women and children in her local community. That vision has developed into an annual walk, which has been supported by over 150 participants and raised over $35,000 for SAHSSI Shoalhaven to date.

Time: Registration from 8:30am for 9:00am start
