Walk to Guangzhou (simplified Chinese: 行路上广州; traditional Chinese: 行路上廣州) is a fund raising campaign held each year to raise awareness in the poor situation of education in the People's Republic of China.
The walk takes place during each Chinese new year from Hong Kong to Guangzhou with the first event taking place in 1994. By the 16th year, over 3800 people have participated, raising a total of HK$68,110,000 in charity donations. Since 2006 the Chinese government has gradually expanded the waivering of school-related fees in China's rural areas. In 2010 about 200 people joined in to raise funds for Yunnan, Sichuan, Gansu and Guizhou.
