Glenn’s Wall of Hope

Help keep Glenn’s memory alive by making a gift in Glenn’s Wall of Hope

Glenn Brown was a Kalgoorlie schoolboy, who at just 15 years of age, lost his fight against cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is an incurable disease that affects the lungs and other vital organs. During his time in the hospital, Glenn met Janeine and Alison, both mothers of children with CF. When Glenn became sick, he told Janeine and Alison that he wasn’t ready to die and was worried he would be forgotten.


Glenn loved having a good time, loved having his photo taken and loved music. His favourite song was Pink Floyd’s A ‘Brick’ in the Wall. This has inspired us to create the Glenn Brown Wall of Hope and ensure he wouldn’t be forgotten.

The Wall is a ‘virtual wall’. This is displayed on the Institute’s website during 2018 as well as on two large screens at the Melbourne Cup Luncheon. Each brick is worth $100 – our goal for 2018 is to sell 100 bricks and raise $10,000! For every brick purchased, we are one step closer to reaching this.
