Newcastle: Welcome Picnic

1 February 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Image may contain: one or more people and people dancing

Bring a picnic!

Lets welcome to Newcastle two extraordinary people, Cassie Cohen and Jackson Bursill
who are running 4000km in 100 days from Cooktown to Melbourne.

For each day they run, they will share a story of a refugee who is local to the area they are running through.

They are doing this to celebrate Australia’s multiculturalism.

By sharing the positive success stories of the former refugees they are also showing how people fleeing conflict and disaster in their land have made our country a better place since they arrived.

The stories are shared at http://boundingplainstoshare.com/ which also chronicles the experiences they are having during their run.
