On October 25th 2008 at 12noon Greenwich Meantime, the world will walk 5km across 5 continents to raise awareness for organ donation and transplantation.

The World’s Biggest Walk is the only global event that knows no borders or state lines and has one vision. We all have a choice and a voice, through the power of our feet.
