This year’s Walk4BrainCancer
Hobart has been the most successful so far with 308 registrations and over $40,000 raised.
Thank you to all the walkers who
registered and raised funds, the people who so generously donated to the cause,
and the volunteers who made the success of this event possible.
Your efforts will help Cure
Brain Cancer to fund research into new treatments, which will undoubtedly save
lives from a terrible disease which kills more Australian children than any
I am determined to continue
building on the success of Walk4BrainCancer Hobart, which will take place
annually until the day comes when no-one has to experience the fear and
uncertainty which comes from a brain cancer diagnosis.
We will continue to accept
donations online for several weeks. - Catryna Bilyk
This easy stroll along the banks of North West Bay overlooks the river estuary through to Mt Wellington. It is a mostly level 2km track with a 30 minute return walking time. The estuary provides habitat for numerous waterbirds and the surrounding black gums are favoured by swift parrots. A perfect walk for the whole family, including prams.
There is ample parking at Dru Point Playground. There will be a fundraising BBQ on the day and great entertainment by local entertainer Fiona Hutchison.
In 2008 I was diagnosed with and operated on for two brain tumours, thankfully both benign. Whilst my experience was relatively short compared to that of many, I have experienced the fear and uncertainty that comes with that diagnosis. Ever since I have worked to do what I can to raise awareness of brain tumours and brain cancer and offer support in working for a cure. This third Tasmanian Walk4Brain Cancer is one way of assisting in this.
