Support Sienna's Big Walk for Cerebral Palsy

CPA.JPG

My name's Sienna and I’m 11 years old. 

I am raising money and awareness for people living with cerebral palsy. 
In September, I will be walking from Queanbeyan to Batemans Bay. 
This will take 5 days and we will be setting up camp at night time. 
I would like to give back to an amazing organisation that has helped so many including my friend Tyrone. 
Thankyou for your support and helping me teach my goal. 
Please visit my fundraising page for further details:

We would love to see some new faces join us on the P&F Committee this year. We welcome new ideas and strategic thinking or if there's anything you'd love to bring to the table, we would really love to hear from you.
