The Big Unwind 2019

The Big Unwind 2019 Sunday, March 31st Edinburgh Park Fitzroy Nth.

Each year we hold The Big Unwind, our annual event to raise awareness and much needed funds for The Christina Ghobadi Foundation. The Foundation gives wellness grants to young people living with cancer. Whether they are still undergoing or have finished their treatment, the road to recovery is exhausting and can take a huge toll on the young person’s mental and physical health and well-being. A wellness grant can support young people with yoga classes, a retreat to a peaceful destination or a gym membership. It can make all the difference to a young person’s recovery.

So please support our work by joining us for The Big Unwind at the Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy North on March 31st, 2019 from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Come for the whole day or drop in for a single event. You can support a good cause just by relaxing and unwinding with your friends and family.

We have lots of activities for adults and children:
