Bill's Walk for Brain Cancer

Take the challenge of walking Melbourne's iconic Tan Track and help raise funds to find a cure for brain cancer.

Bill Tingate is remembered for his brave battle with brain cancer. He loved walking, and taking on many challenges like Everest Base Camp and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Like so many city workers, The Tan was a favorite of his to walk or run during lunch breaks, when he worked nearby in South Melbourne
