Southern Cross Association Poker Run – 7 – 12 September 2015
The Southern Cross Association Annual Poker Run was a great success again this year. For Spina Bifida Awareness over 400 bikers and pillions rode through rural Queensland to make it a wonderful event. The run began at Toompine south of Quilpie and proceeded to Home Hill in North Queensland with nightly stopovers at Bollon, Tara, Springsure, and Nebo covering a distance of over 2,000 klms and over 4,000 klms for riders travelling from South East Queensland.
Apart from raising awareness of spina bifida, and being a whole lot of fun, the ride raised over $40,000 to help support our Babies at Home program. Thank you Southern Cross Association for your wonderful support for us every year since 1996.
Westfield Carindale has chosen SBH Queensland to be its charity partner for 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2014/15.
Thank you to Westfield Shopping Centres National for supporting us with grants to run several programs for young children.
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.This site is maintained by Bill Shead, the Information Officer & Manager of SBH Queensland.
