Governor-General launches the Spinal Cord Injuries Australia 'Walk On' Program

4 November 2010

Our very first NSW Walk On program was launched in Sydney yesterday by our Patron the Governor-General, Ms Quentin Bryce AC.


“The Walk On program isn't about learning how to manage a crippling injury, how to accept a lifelong disability it's about looking and literally moving beyond injury and disability to reclaim the life you want to lead”,  Ms Bryce said. For more of her compassionate speech please click here.

Mr Roderick Watson and Mr Tony Glashoff spoke about the injuries they had sustained and the assistance they were receiving through the Walk On program at the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Health Science, Lidcombe.

Ms Bryce and Mr Michael Bryce AM AE were later taken on a tour of the rehabilitation centre and met clients of the program.

The day was a huge success and our thanks to The Governor General & Mr Bryce and the University of Sydney and our clients and supporters who attended.
