LCA Story of the Week:
Lutheran Disability Services (LDS) Support Worker Julie Green hadn't heard of Walk My Way before the lead-up to last month’s event in SA’s Barossa Valley. But now she says the LDS team of clients and staff ‘can’t wait to do it again’. ‘They have expressed how proud they are to support Walk My Way’, she says.
