The National Fire Industry Association (NFIA) Patron’s Annual Walk for Charity is an annual event and is pleased to be up and running once again in 2021. In 2019, this event raised over $255,000 for the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) at The University of Queensland and Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation (GMRF).

Why we give

These donors made a difference by supporting our brain research
 
Dr Kerry Dowsett’s curiosity about how the brain functions has led him to leave a lasting gift in his will to the Queensland Brain Institute.
The impact of mental health on the community sparked a couple to start a relationship with QBI.
A group of builders may help spark the next breakthrough in neuroscience after donating money from their parking lot to help dementia research.

Why we give
Are you a donor or supporter of QBI and would like to share your story? We would love to hear from you!
