We did it again! WINGs of Hope supporters enter the Sydney Running Festival event every year, taking them across the iconic Sydney Harbour bridge and raising funds for WINGS of Hope projects.
Not only were they sweating it out to complete a gruelling course over the Harbour Bridge, they also raised much needed funds in memory of our loved ones. Wings of Hope would like to thank all our supporters who helped us to raise close to $1600! Thank you to our runners, fundraisers and those supporters who attended the brunch after the run. We truly appreciate the amazing support via donations this year and hope to see you again next year at our annual get together. See the photos of our special day.Read More

Judy of Cammeray said about the WINGS of Hope website and the Remembrance Gathering:
"I visit this site regularly & have posted a comment recently. My daughter died by suicide last July, losing the battle with anorexia. I intend to go to the Memorial Day at Balmoral this year & will rely on the WINGS of Hope website for information. I look for reassurance from this & other websites, that I am not alone in my grief."
Saturday, 17 November, 2012 is International Survivors of Suicide Day and this weekend, registered harm prevention charity WINGS of Hope will host a special Remembrance Gathering at Balmoral, NSW.
