Thank you for supporting another successful W4BL event!

On Saturday the 25th of March, BrainLink hosted it's second Walk 4 BrainLink event with the mindset for it to be bigger and better than before.  The aim was to raise money and awareness to continue to support, celebrate and empower the ABI community and their families.

Hundreds of like minded people - made up of carers, familes, people living with an ABI/ABD, health & disability organisations, nurses and supporters - came together to walk around The Tan Track, in St Kilda to aid our goal of raising funds and awareness.   

 The was one talented balloon man, two real fairies who painted faces, three food truck with delicious good to feed the masses and hundreds of smiles throughout the day.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the BUPA THERAPY team for your continued support of our organisation and goals.  It was a fantastic collaborative effort to walk the Tan with your amazing staff and families.

We would to take this opportunity to thank Collingwood AFLW player NICOLA STEVENS, for opening our event and sharing some of her experiences as a Carer.  Your presence was definitely a welcome addition to this important event and your words of encouragement and honesty, made the opening truly special.
