Join us for an inspirational 2km walk in Hobart on Sunday 3rd November and support people impacted by brain cancer.
2019 Walk4BrainCancer shirts are on sale! Cure Brain Cancer Foundation merchandise will be available to purchase on the day (excluding personalised t-shirts).
Join us for the sixth Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania. The 2km walk will take us along the banks of North West Bay in Hobart.
At the beginning of the walk, a short memorial service will be held. Depending on the weather, paper cranes will be hung 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 making their own. There will be entertainment by local musician Fiona Hutchison. We will have the usual raffle and sausage sizzle. Walk4BrainCancer merchandise will be available for purchase. Dogs are allowed but must be on a lead at all times.
“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 sixth Tasmanian Walk4BrainCancer is one way of assisting this.”
– Catryna Bilyk, organiser of Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania
