Walk for a Cure for Brain Cancer

Click here to donate to the cause.

One Australian is diagnosed with brain cancer every 5 hours.

80% of patients diagnosed with brain cancer will die within 5 years.

Personally, my family and I recently lost our beloved Peter Hudson to glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer which currently has no cure.

In recent weeks, our community has been rocked by the loss of Jed Cahill, a much-loved Currumbin Viking, who also was taken too soon by brain cancer.

We know that research into brain cancer is underfunded, and because of this, survival rates haven’t changed in 30 years.

More funding and research is critical to finding a cure.

Please join us on our walk for a cure, to raise funds and awareness, and in loving memory of those affected by brain cancer.

Where: Meet in Roughton Park, Kirra, and walking to the Rainbow Bay SLSC (approximately 2km or a 30 minute walk).

When: 7 August 2022.

Time: 11:00am.

Wear your loved one’s favourite colour, or the official colour for cancer, purple. My office will also have marathon bibs for us to write who we are walking for on. My family and I will be walking for Pete and wearing his favourite colour, blue. You might want to walk for your loved one, or simply for a cure.

Bring: Any memory you would like to walk with.

At the end of our walk, everyone is invited to join us at the Rainbow Bay SLSC for a free BBQ lunch.

All we ask is that you make a donation to help find a cure for brain cancer.
