At the beginning of the walk a short memorial service will be held. Depending on the weather, we will hang paper cranes from a tree in memory of friends and loved ones who have died of brain cancer. Origami paper and instructions will be available if you would like to make a memorial crane and write a message on it. A limited quantity of ready-made cranes will be provided for those who have difficulty creating their own.
There will also be great entertainment by the wonderful local entertainer Fiona Hutchison.
Remember to bring your loose change; we will be having the usual raffle and sausage sizzle.
"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 fourth Tasmanian Walk4Brain Cancer is one way of assisting in this."
Senator Catryna Bilyk, local walk organiser
