Worldwide Lyme Protest May 10th & 11th 2013 Queensland: Brisbane - Awareness Event, May 11th
The Days Events & Photos
The Days Round Up: Whilst the rainy weather in Brisbane kept most of the general community away, the awareness event at New Farm Park was attended by around 70 - 80 Queensland Lyme patients, relatives and friends.
A BBQ, face painting, balloon twisting, a performance by Emily Madden and talks by Naturopath, Amina Eastham-Hillier and Soft-Tissue therapist and film maker, Rebecca Mills, kept the afternoon rolling by.
The awareness in Brisbane didn't stop with the Saturday afternoon event, but continued with many buildings shining for Lyme: Australia had 17 buildings and landmarks lighting up for Lyme on the week-end of the WWLP. Thanks to the hard work of Zara Ward and the Brisbane team - 8 of those buildings were from Brisbane and surrounds. These were: Park Regis North Quay Hotel, The Treasury Casino in Brisbane, Kurilpa Bridge, Reddacliff Place, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, King George Square and the Gold Coast's iconic Skypoint Q1 observation deck.
A Big Shout out to say Thank you to Bunnings Albion and Bellmere Butchers for their support with this event
