Thank you everyone for joining us at our first Walk for Life at Centennial Park. It was wonderful to see everyone there and to receive such warm support for the walk. Thank you also Sue Timbs from EndUCD, Chris Hardwicke from Compassionate Friends NSW, and Julia and John Zuza from Response For Life for joining us on this special walk.
On a warm November day we met at the One More Shot Pond picnic ground in Centennial Park under the glorious liquidambar trees.
Bagpipes heralded the walk and Jenny introduced us to the meaning of the day.
We walked together in our red caps, past giant oak tress and weeping willows, ponds and bats, sharing and remembering our treasured loved ones.
Once returned, we shared our thoughts and reflections over a picnic lunch. The day fulfilled our hopes to provide a setting where people could talk of both deep love and loss and where we could all carry our enduring connections with those who we have lost and who are carrying on.
