Evening fun in Roma Street Parklands to support autism
An evening walk with a group of fun, like-minded people through the Roma Street Parklands on a Sunday night sounds good doesn't it?
Glow Blue for Autism!
Autism Queensland invites you, your family and friends to join them at Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane City for the Go Blue for Autism Twilight Walk. This inaugural event is being held to celebrate Autism Awareness month and to raise much needed funds in support of the good work done every day by Autism Queensland.
Begin your evening at 5pm with lots of fun in the Forest Meadow section of the Lakeside Precinct inside Roma Street Parklands where the event kicks off with a sausage sizzle, face painting, balloon sculpting and the very entertaining "Blue Morphs".
At 6pm the walkers will depart decorated with blue glow sticks (available at the event) to complete the easy 3km course through the Roma Street Parklands precinct. The area is well lit and the paths are smooth to encourage those in wheelchairs and walkers of all energy levels.
Walk to support Autism Awareness month, walk for your own fitness, or simply walk to enjoy a lovely evening stroll in safety through the Parklands. Whatever your reason, the night promises to be fun and enjoyable!
Don't forget to wear your brightest blue for the walk! Glow Blue to Go Blue!!
