Raising Awareness of Bladder Cancer
Welcome. Thank you so much for coming to Anna's Walk with us!
Anna’s Walk hopes to help raise awareness of bladder cancer amongst all Australians, and to highlight the information & support available for those in need.
It is also an opportunity for us to do our bit to support those who have been directly impacted by this terrible disease.
And it’s a great excuse to take time out of our busy lives to simply appreciate the beauty all around us.
Adam Lynch - Founder and President, BEAT Bladder Cancer Australia
Anna's Walk in (nearly) every State & Territory!
This year we are delighted to be able to offer a walk in most states and territories,
giving you the opportunity to walk for bladder cancer wherever you live in Australia.
Anna Lynch tragically lost her battle with bladder cancer in September 2017, aged just 45. It just wasn’t fair; how could someone so healthy, calm, and living in the moment be lost to this awful thing? She left behind a devoted husband, two young children Noah, now 17 and Manon, 15; and wonderful family and friends.
Anna was such an inspiration to everyone that knew her, and had an amazing aura about her. A serene calmness, and an attitude of slowing down and just ‘being’ and not always ‘doing’. She reminded people to see the beauty in every day. Very difficult to do in the fast-paced world we all live in. But it rubbed off on all that knew her – this was her legacy.
Anna inspired us to form BEAT Bladder Cancer Australia; a volunteer-led patient advocacy charity to help raise awareness of bladder cancer, and to provide information & support to those touched by this terrible disease.
