Canberra to Brisbane Walk - June 06

"To walk from Canberra to Brisbane to raise awareness of acquired brain injury (ABI), whilst raising money for the National Brain Injury Foundation for the improvement of support services and rehabilitation equipment for the benefit of people affected by ABI”The aim of the walk is partly to raise money for the NBIF, it is also an awareness-raising activity aimed at educating communities about the fact that many people with ABI have to reside in nursing homes.The walk will commence on the 1st of June 2006. Amy plans to walk 30kms each ‘walking day’ and expects to complete her trek in eight weeks.

There was an article about Amy Banson in the Canberra  Times today. I wish her the best of luck with her walk.
