Better known for gracing Perth’s fashion runways, 22-year-old Grady Wulff is also an avid supporter of neurological research, and has channelled that passion in more ways than one.
Whilst at university, Grady spent 18 months working with the Neurological Council of WA to transform the way in which the nursing service was delivered.
“I developed a web-app to support the Neurological Council of WA – to make their systems more efficient.
“We transformed what was previously a pen and paper system, to a digital form, which has helped them to grow their services throughout WA,” says Grady.
It was only when Grady’s sister lost a close friend to brain cancer at a young age, that she witnessed the devastation of conditions affecting the brain.
“As a result of this loss I came to realise that so much more awareness, support and research is needed for brain cancer,” she says.
At this year’s HBF Run for a Reason, Grady will be running in support of the Charlie Teo Foundation.
“I’m running for the Charlie Teo Foundation, which is shaking-up the way we raise and use funds in brain cancer research. They are giving hope and the wonderful team are the reason I am running.
“Brain cancer kills more people under 40 than any other cancer. Across all cancers, the five-year survival rate is just 22%.
“We are going to change those numbers, through funding, research and spreading the word of causes like the Charlie Teo Foundation, to build awareness.”
