What is CNOY Like?

CNOY is a family-friendly event that raises funds for the mental health services and family supports that Eagles Nest provides.  Every $50 raised provides someone in the community with 1 hour of mental health support.

You can choose to walk 2km or 5km. You can walk on your own or create a team and walk as a group!

Walking routes go through Waterdown Village.  It's a fun night with route marshalls cheering you along, hosted rest stops with treats at local businesses and a warm snack at the end.

Still not sure?

Hear from past walkers, businesses and other community supporters about what CNOY is like!
