It’s on again – the Wheel and Walk fun run 10 August 2014

Our Wheel and Walk is on again for 2014. It promises to be a wonderful day so come and join us at Captain Burke Park below the Story Bridge at Kangaroo Point on Sunday 10 August.

We have great prizes for our Highest Fundraising Individuals. Additionally, both the Male and Female Race Winners will each win two nights’ accommodation for two people at Kingfisher Bay Resort, Fraser Island. Child prizes, Prizes for Entrants with a Disability and Encouragement prizes will also be awarded.

The funds raised support our work helping people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus including the Babies at Home program. The flyer and registration form can be downloaded here. A great way to increase your support is to ask your friends and relatives to support you and you can do this by registering on our everyday hero website.

Babies at Home program

Our Babies at Home Program receives no government funding but the work we do is vitally important for new babies with spina bifida and their families. For more information about our Babies at Home program download our brochure.

Minimise the risk of your baby having spina bifida

A simple vitamin called folic acid taken daily can make a huge difference to the risks of your baby developing spina bifida.

If you are in a high risk group (have any family history of spina bifida or other neural tube defect, have type 1 diabetes or take some anti-epileptic medication) then please download and read our You and Your Pregnancy brochure.
