In March 2017, Associate Professor Andrew Kornberg will take off on a fundraising adventure like no other!

Andrew is flying solo, circumnavigating Australia in a single engine aircraft to raise funds for the 2017 Good Friday Appeal. On his way he will be visiting some of the brave and courageous patients he has cared for along the way.
