Friends of Formula One
Friends of Formula One equally supports three charities for all our current activities – Halow Project, Alzheimer's Australia and Caya's Marathon. Halow Project aims to ensure that every person with a learning disability has the same life choices and chances as any other person. Halow offers a unique blend of activities, giving young people the chance to enjoy an active social life, make new friends, and find further educational and employment training. Alzheimer's Australia represents more than 413,106 Australians living with dementia and the estimated 291,163 Australians involved in their care. The charity advocates for the needs of people living with all types of dementia, and for their families and carers. It provides support services, education and information. Caya's Marathon supports Caya, an 8-year old girl who suffers from spastic diplegia Cerebral Palsy. When Caya was first diagnosed, her parents were told: 'Put it this way, she'll never run a marathon.' We want to prove them wrong. Caya needs to be assessed for SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy), a surgical procedure that will also involve intensive physiotherapy afterward.
