Chris Walker is on an epic journey.

The former Titan and Queensland State of Origin star is walking from Cairns to the Gold Coast to raise money for charity.

He'll cover 1,757 kilometres over 66 days as he treks down the coast to the finish line in Surfers Paradise where he'll arrive on June 30.

Chris Walker's message for Titans fans about his walk

“There are so many people that are struggling through their day to day life," Walker told myGC.

"I want to go out there and be a beacon for people… and a beacon of hope."

Walker, who played 20 games for the Titans between 2007 and 2009, was joined by fellow former Titan Nate Myles for the first leg of the walk.

“I’m taking on this challenge to raise funds and awareness for a few really important charities so they can continue to implement their amazing programs and keep up with the unprecedented demand for their services," Walker said.

The "Walk of a Lifetime" Challenge will raise money for Beyond Blue, RizeUp Australia, the Alcohol and Drug Foundation and Global Awakening.

"There's also another beneficiary which is going to be the Carl Webb foundation for Motor Neurone Disease.

"I played a lot of footy with Carl Webb and I have known Webby for over 30 years, he's one of the good guys and he is a true inspiration for this walk."
