Media Launch - The Long Walk Together 2015

Media Launch - The Long Walk Together 2015

Twenty years on from their history changing moment on the MCG, Michael Long and Damian Monkhorst were reunited at the famous ground to launch this year's The Long Walk.

The theme of this year's The Long Walk is "Together", and it was fitting that Long and Monkhorst shared their memories of the 1995 ANZAC Day clash and the AFL's vilification policy which was born out of the fallout.

They were joined by current Essendon players Jake Long and Courtenay Dempsey, as well as Kevin Sheedy, Ross Oakley and Martin Flanagan to launch The Long Walk Together 2015 event at Federation Square on Saturday 30 May.

The Long Walk also welcomed Reconciliation Australia as their Principal Sponsor for the event, and were joined at the launch by Deputy CEO, Karen Mundine.
