My Activity Tracking


My target 50 kms

GMG - I’m taking part in Walk for Epilepsy around Australia because...

Please help me raise money and awareness of people living with epilepsy and to especially raise awareness and educate people about SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy) as it took the young life of my beloved and talented husband Matthew James Garufi in March 2023 at 41yrs old.

Please help by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. The more people that know about the walk and cause, the greater the impact, please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to me and the Garufi/Nadile family! 

I'll be walking strong in memory and honor of my Matty!
