On Sunday 22 October, we’re inviting you to put your purple gear on and join us for an inspirational 2-5km walk on the Athletics Track at Beaton Park, Gwynneville, in honour of those we’ve lost to brain cancer, to celebrate the survivors, and to give hope, courage and support to those currently fighting brain cancer and to each other. You will also be helping to raise much needed awareness and vital funds for brain cancer research and advocacy.
The track is an all-weather purpose track, caters for walkers of all levels and is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. You can walk as many laps as you like (2km is equivalent to approximately 4 laps of the track).

“My dad Stojan was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 35. He sadly passed away 12 months following his surgery, leaving behind mum who was 30 at the time, and 3 young children. We miss Dad every day and wonder what life would have been like if he was still with us. It is devastating that more than 30 years on, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer. Of recent, wonderful members of our local community have been left devastated with a brain cancer diagnosis or the loss of their loved ones due to brain cancer and it is absolutely heartbreaking. The walk for me represents awareness, funds for research and advocacy, support, love, hope, honor, and respect.”
