In Melbourne on Sunday, 9 September 2012, Polio Australia teamed up with Scope to participate in Ability First Australia’s annual Walk with Me awareness and fundraising activity.
Polio Australia set a challenging fundraising target of $10,000 for our inaugural Walk. The efforts of John Tierney (National Patron’s Walk With Me) and Fran Henke (Fran’s Scoot With Me) raised $3,770 – a truly magnificent effort.
We are very grateful to John and Fran who walked and scooted to raise these funds. Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who so generously donated to support John and Fran and Polio Australia as we work on behalf of Australia’s many tens of thousands of polio survivors. In 2013 we are aiming to involve more walkers and more States to build on John’s and Fran’s example and achieve an even better result.
Although this year’s Walk With Me is now over, it is not too late to support Polio Australia.
