Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania is your chance to be part of the large group of Australians from the bush to the beach walking for brain cancer in November. You'll be helping to raise awareness and funds for vital brain cancer research projects.
Join Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania at Dru Point Bicentennial Park, Margate, for an inspirational morning walk followed by a fun-filled celebration.
This easy stroll along the banks of North West Bay overlooks the river estuary through to Mt Wellington. It is a mostly level 2km track with a 30 minute return walking time. The estuary provides habitat for numerous waterbirds and surrounding black gums are favoured by swift parrots. A perfect walk for the whole family, including prams.
There is ample parking at Dru Point Playground and the Rotary Club of D'Entrecasteaux Channel are assisting this event by providing a fundraising BBQ on the day.
Register to walk as an individual, join another local Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania team or create your own team and ask friends and family to register on your team and walk with you.
After registering, set up your personal Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania fundraising page or if you are walking as part of a team, why not set up a team fundraising page.
Invite people to sponsor you and watch the total we raise for Walk4BrainCancer nationally grow. Watch this page too for a little bit of rivalry as Tasmania takes on the other states to see which walk can raise the most for research!
Wear a touch of purple or buy one of our Walk4BrainCancer t-shirts. If you walking as a group, you can even personalise your team t-shirts with a message and photo on the back and show Australia who you are walking for.
“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. The inaugural Tasmanian Walk4Brain Cancer is one way of assisting in this."
- Senator Catryna Bilyk, community organiser for Walk4BrainCancer Tasmania.
