A team of staff participated in the Spartan Race at Suncorp Stadium on 27 February 2016.
The Spartan Race was a 6km track with 30 obstacles. Some obstacles consisted of wall climbs, carrying sandbags up stairs and back, medicine ball walks, rope climbs, balancing beams, box jumps, 80m of burpees, kangaroo jumping with legs tied, sandbag pull up with a rope and in between each of those obstacles was stairs, stairs and more stairs!
Congratulations to those who participated - well done Team Q&S!

Quinn & Scattini Charity Will Day
Announcing the Quinn & Scattini Charity Will Day, to be held on Friday January 16.
Quinn & Scattini Lawyers are passionate about developing and improving the many communities that they are a part of.
The Charity Will Day will be held early next year at the Cleveland branch and Quinn & Scattini Lawyers would like to extend an invitation to members of the community to book an appointment to update their will, while supporting two local charities, Redkite and The Tertiary Place.
$100 from every will paid for on the day will be donated equally between Redkite, which supports young people with cancer and their families and The Tertiary Place, which assists people with disabilities with continued education after school.
If you would like to make an appointment, or would like to receive futher information, please email email@example.com or phone 3821 2766.
Approximately 780 people walked the lengthy 60km track around Brisbane city over two days, walking 30km each day.
Our Practice Manager, Toni Murphy, was team captain of the YOLO’s (You Only Live Once) and crossed the line with her friend Annette Musgrove by her side, with the support of their Crew Team.
Also part of the The Yolo’s was the Pitt Crew - Anne-Maree Martin and Aideen Quigley, who both offered much needed encouragement and laughs along the way.
A special mention to Aideen who attended the weekend despite having finished her last chemo treatment just four days before the walk! Toni and Anne-Maree are childhood friends and their mothers are both cancer survivors.
An incredible amount of over two million dollars was raised for QIMR Berghofer and the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital who will be putting the funds raised to immediate use, in the hope to learn more, improve treatments and eventually find a cure for women’s cancers.
The event was inspiring in so many ways and Quinn & Scattini Lawyers were proud to havecontributed to Cancer Research by sponsoring Toni in the walk.
We thank the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers for the organisation and dedication in supporting such a wonderful cause.
Cool Night Classic
Quinn & Scattini Lawyers showed their community spirit at the recent PwC Cool Night Classic, a walk or run event that supports local Queensland charities.
This year, funds were raised for stroke research at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH) and for Youngcare, a charity that is seeking better options for young people with 24/7 care needs who are currently living in aged care.
The team enjoyed the contrast of the cool evening run and were proud to be part of such an inspirational cause.

Seniors Information Sessions
Wills & Estates expert of Quinn & Scattini Lawyers, Thomas Ashton, was recently invited to speak at the Seniors Morning Tea events, organised by Federal Member of Parliament for Moreton, Mr Graham Perrett.
Thomas was honoured to participate and said that the events “present an engaging forum to deliver some general information, particularly about the importance of keeping your estate planning up-to-date. These events make it a little easier and more accessible for people to obtain some general legal advice that they might not otherwise want to spend too much time or money worrying about.”
“I particularly enjoy the questions I am asked during these presentations, and demonstrating the relevance of current estate planning to all of us, and the peace of mind that can be secured with a little legal advice and guidance."
Thomas advises that, although Wills and Estates law is generally associated with older persons, people of all ages should ensure that their estate planning is up-to-date and reflects their intentions.
Thomas would especially like to thank Graham for organising the events and for the opportunity to speak about Wills and Estates matters.
Brisbane Business Networking Group
The Brisbane Business Network group (a.k.a. That Breakfast Club) recently held their second post-expansion/ post-rules breakfast. The group has expanded significantly from humble beginnings just over a year ago. The recent breakfast was an entertaining and educational morning with a comical presentation by Sam Hunt from Harcourts Real Estate. Quinn & Scattini Lawyers supplied a lucky door prize (bottle of vintage Moet champagne) that was won by Alex Nelson, barrister.
If you are a likeminded professional and want to attend one of the group’s breakfasts contact organiser Virginia Wills at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name added to the email list.
