  • Welcome to Owen’s first-ever Walk4BrainCancer! We’ll meet at Owen Golf Club before taking on a 4km walk along the Owen Walking Trail.

    Tania and Wayne are hosting the Owen Walk4BrainCancer in memory of their son, Max:

    “Our son, Max, was diagnosed with 2 brain tumours in October 2009 just 2 months before his 9th birthday.  The treatment that followed was tough, but Max maintained a positive attitude throughout it all. In the years that followed Max was able to return to school and to do the things he loved – playing football, tennis and basketball.

    In July 2018 at the age of 17 Max suddenly, and unexpectedly, passed away. An autopsy later showed that his brain cancer had returned and was widespread throughout his brain and spinal cord. We were devastated by Max’s death. However, we remain grateful that we had almost 9 years with him following his initial diagnosis. In that time we were able to see Max recover from his treatment and enjoy life as a regular teenage boy. We had a number of wonderful family holidays together and made many memories to treasure. 

    We are holding this walk to raise awareness and funds for research into a disease that has not only affected our lives but many other families in our district alone.”
