    Successful event gives cause for pause in Centennial Parklands

Walk4Life - Sydney

On Sunday 3 November, we were privileged to host an annual event with a growing level of interest, but most importantly, raising funds for a cause of importance for us all. The Cure for Life’s Walk4Life.

Led on the ‘walk’ by Cure for Life Founder, Dr Charlie Teo AM, around 800 participants helped to raise approximately $75,000 for brain cancer research (here is an article explaining more about this cause – certainly a matter that is worth pausing to consider).

Families enjoyed a BBQ lunch listening to laid back music and kids were entertained with jumping castle, kindifarm and craft activities.
