When I stop and think about February I cannot really think of a whole lot out of the ordinary happening, all I think is 'how many days does this month even have?!' then I continue to recite the one poem I remember from primary school.
Thirty days has September, April, June and November.
All the rest have thirty-one, Except for February, And that has
twenty-eight days with twenty-nine in each leap year.
Please tell me I am not the only one... and who even knows when each leap year is? It used to align with he Olympics, but even that got confused in 2020.
The end of February has brought the south east of QLD a whole load of rain, we hope everyone is staying safe and the water hasn't caused many too much damage. Fingers crossed for some sunshine soon, just in time for Ski Day.
It seems our team continues to grow and develop across the years/months and we are so grateful for each new spark that comes with each Crew Member. This week we were treated to a belated Christmas gift in the form of team breakfast at Common Grounds in Burleigh, what a treat to start our Tuesday Morning!

We are excited and proud to announce that the 16-week on-site (at Making Strides) component of the Intensive Rehabilitation Trial has been completed for the Griffith University Spinal Research Study. This is an exciting milestone in the study so far and we look forward to seeing the analysed data project forward into helping begin phase 2. To read more about the current SIP study click here.
