In full sunshine, donor families and living donors walked along part of Western Australia's stunning coastline on Monday 17 April to reflect on the gift of life and the loss of their loved ones.
The gentle walk along the boardwalk or the beautiful sands of City Beach was organised as a beautiful moment in a busy week to stop, reflect and remember.
Some even swam in the Indian Ocean for the first time.
The location was near the inspirational Life Project sculpture, commissioned by DonateLife as a reminder of the importance of humanity’s interconnectedness and the ongoing legacy the act of donation offers to humanity.
WA Artist and architect Simon Youngleson’s sculptures are an expression of his life-long study of the human scale and his development of the Golden Scale of Human Proportion.Unveiled in August 2020, the sculpture by Simon Youngleson offers a permanent place where people who have received life transforming organ and tissue transplants and donor families can visit and take a moment to reflect.
Thankyou to all the participants in this special morning.
