Budgie Bolt 2023

The Budgie Bolt 2023 was held on Sunday 11 June, 2023!

Hundreds of Youngcare supporters were brave and wheeled, walked or ran 5km in their budgie smugglers or your most extravagant red costume to raise funds and awareness for young Australians with high physical support needs.

Why? To create freedom, dignity and choice for young Australians with high physical support needs being left behind. Every young person, regardless of their care needs, deserves the freedom to choose where they live, who they live with and how they live their lives. It’s up to all of us to make sure that happens.

No matter how uncomfortable they felt running 5kms in their Budgie Smugglers or red get-up, it’s not nearly as uncomfortable as the life a young person in aged care lives.
