Chris Towner has newfound happiness in his home with
Multicap on the Gold Coast and is on the run to a much brighter future than the
Towner family could have imagined.
Before finding his place with Multicap, Chris had run a
marathon of overwhelming obstacles due to his battle with Autism and an intellectual
impairment. His family’s struggle to find a way to manage his challenging behaviours,
while protecting him from both himself and others is truly remarkable. CLICK HERE to learn more about the Towner's inspiring story.
These days the only running that Chris does is on the
marathon track! He started with a 5km fun run, and recently completed a 10km
slog with his dedicated Multicap carers right by his side. Chris’s mum, Lee, is adamant that his
newfound happiness rests on the quality of the accommodation and the
willingness of Multicap staff to listen and accommodate.
Multicap is relying on the generous donations of the
community to help urgently raise $15,000 for the Brighter Futures Appeal. These
funds will provide vital care for people with high needs disabilities across
Queensland and ensure that Multicap can be there for families just like the
Towner’s when others will not and cannot.
All donations to the Brighter Futures
Appeal before 30 June will give you an immediate tax deduction.
