In memory of Paul Sampi, 1932 - 2017.

Paul Sampi, also known by his bush name Djarrnunbirr, was born in 1932 at Lombadina Mission and was one of 14 siblings. Paul has 8 children, 37 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. In 2016, motivated by the need to help those less fortunate, Paul completed a 30km journey in his wheelchair to raise funds for The Salvation Army. This journey saw him travel from One Arm Point to Lombadina Remote Community, located in the Dampier Peninsula.

Sadly, Paul passed in January 2017, leaving behind his family and the community that he loved so dearly.

This year, the Sampi Family will be completing the 30km walk in memory of Djarrnunbirr and the incredible passion he had for his community. Djarrnunbirr's legacy will live on through his family and we ask all Australian's to donate generously in support of this. Together, we can make a difference to the lives of those that are struggling.

All funds raised through the Djarrnunbirr Walk for Change 2017 will go to Crossroads West Transitional Support Services who are currently working incredibly hard to provide local support to young people in the Kimberley. All donations to this event will assist them in employing a local Youth Worker who will help make a lasting change within the community.

Please note: This is the only authorised fundraising page for the Djarrnunbirr Walk for Change. If you see any other third-party website raising funds using this event name or claiming to be raising funds on behalf of the Sampi family, please report this to or call (08) 9260 9587. Thank you.
