Community-driven is how to describe this year's walk against domestic violence.
All members of the community are urged to take part in this event, which is now in its third year.
The 15 or 30-kilometre walk, starting from Huskisson, will be held on Saturday, August 10 and will once again hug the Jervis Bay coastline.
Event organiser Jo Warren said domestic violence simply needed to be stopped.
"It (the walk) is really all about the need to have a conversation around domestic violence and how it impacts on women and children in terms of things like homelessness in our community," she said.
"In terms of organising the event again - it was a no brainer."
The walk will once again support SAHSSI (Supported Accommodation and Homelessness Services Shoalhaven Illawarra).
Violence against women is something we will need to be aware of and we can't turn our backsJo Warren
The first two walks were overwhelming successes and Jo decided she would build upon this.
She is not worried that the participation levels will drop.
"I expect, like anything there, there will be ebbs and flows and people might be committed to other things," she said.
"When I looked at doing this walk in the first place I thought I could get 50 people to walk and make $5000. At the first walk, we had about 100 people and raised $15,000 and about $12,000 was raised last year."
Jo said if it all levels out she still had achieved far before than expected.
She added even if they make $5000 this year it would be worthwhile.
"More importantly, it's about people being out on the cycleway saying 'we are wearing orange and purple and we are supporting SAHSSI and we are aware of domestic violence'.
"It's all about starting a conversation and it's important people log onto the website this year."

Jo said the website had great resources in regards to starting a conversation on domestic violence.
Conversation starters and statistics are just some of the things on the website.
"Violence against women is something we will need to be aware of and we can't turn our backs," Jo said.
Members of the local Australian Defence Force will once again back the event by walking and raising awareness.
Jo said if people can't walk they might like to be a volunteer.
Meanwhile, SAHSI is looking to save money for more crisis accommodation in Nowra.
"The money is specifically being used to help women escaping domestic violence circumstances," Jo said.
Putting SAHSSI 30 into Facebook's search engine not only opens up the easy registration and fundraising avenues but also information on what SAHSSI is about.
Some of the IT issues have been sorted out which means the registration and donation process is better.
Fundraising is now easier and people can set up an Everyday Hero account and support other people if they can't take part in the actual walk.
Walkers will once again get to soak up the beautiful Jervis Bay coastline while walking for a great cause.
Jo said it was a work you never get tired of doing.
She added organising the actual event was straightforward and simple to run but she is grateful that the IT matters are sorted.
