The Kyle Andrews Foundation has become the latest organisation to have their events added to the ever-growing and heartbreaking list of cancellations in the midst of ever-growing restrictions on public gatherings.

The foundation took to social media to announce they had regrettably been forced to cancel the 2020 Kyle’s Camp and Kyle’s Walk.

Kyle’s Walk was set to attract hundreds of Broome residents to Cable Beach to walk along the coast on May 17, while Kyle’s Camp was set to welcome sick kids to Broome.

In a statement posted to The Kyle Andrews Foundation Facebook page, president Matt Sear said cancelling two of their major events was done “with a heavy heart.”

“It is the first time since Kyle’s Dream was achieved in 1998 that the camp will not go ahead and as a committee we are devastated to not be able to deliver this life changing camp to the Perth Children’s Hospital kids,” he said.

“We know that everyone understands that the decision has been taken out of our hands and that this is in the best interests of the kids.

“We would like to thank the Western Australian community and in particular the people of Broome for the unbelievable support we have received continually for 23 years."
