We walked, it rained, we conquered...
The 2018 Walk 4 BrainLink was a fantastic event that was enjoyed by Carers, Families, People living with an ABI/ABD and a horde of others who astounded us by braving the elements in the name of raising awareness and funds for the community of people living with an Acquired Brain Injury.
Although the weather was dreary with rain, and the tents were being pummelled by the gales - this did not deter the masses from attending "WALK 4 BRAINLINK". There were smiles in abundance with children eating lollies, people getting their faces painted and more waiting in line for a decorative balloon. However, the marquee was the main hive of activity filled with people huddled in conversation over hot coffee and jam doughnuts and tables of tee shirts and ponchos ready to be claimed.
With a few words from Sharon Strugnell BrainLink CEO, and long time BrainLink ambassador Michael Cormick, accomplished actor and singer, who started the event with a toot of his horn - our supporters, staff and friends completed the 3.2km hike around the lake with wind at their backs and smiles on their faces. What an amazing group of supporters we have!

We at BrainLink would like to thank those who have supported us including Nga Matai Purua NZ performing Arts group and Koko Black, with a massive shout of gratitude to our Gold Sponsor, Bupa Therapy. Most of all we would like to thank each and everyone who donated dollars, time and who allow us to continue to help Carers and Families in their capacity to deal with the daily living challenges of complex behaviours arising from ABI & ABD. The walk would not have been the fantastic day it was, without you all. THANK YOU.
