Colour Run a Huge Success
22 October 2017:
The fourth Macedon Ranges Health Annual Colour Fun Run & Walk was an outstanding success this year with over 650 participants and 100 volunteers taking part in the event. The community have embraced this event and are such enthusiastic participants. MRH’s Exercise Physiologist Jamie Hart spent some time stretching and warming the participants up and the weather gods were on our side again. The MRH Allied Health team also attended the event including the Mental Health support team, Physiotherapy team, Naturopath Leisa and of course we had one of our nurses Judith ensuring first aid was available.
Don Tidbury Macedon Ranges Health CEO said "For this to be our fourth year of the event and have such continued enthusiasm and support from the community is incredible. The Colour Run is Macedon Ranges Health's flagship health promotion event, and it provides a great day out for the family whilst encouraging healthy, active lifestyles and social inclusion".
All funds raised directly support Macedon Ranges Health, an independent not-for-profit provider of primary care, NDIS, welfare, home care and residential aged care.
This event could not happen without the financial support of sponsors and the amazing team of volunteers. Major sponsors this year were the Bendigo Bank and Neal Street Medical Clinic. Volunteer groups who ensure the event remains incident free but still fun included the Mens Shed, Live4Life Crew, Gisborne Scouts, Gisborne Thunder Swimming Club, Gisborne Church of Christ, Bendigo Bank, Rotary and the SES. We also had many individuals and MRH staff contribute to the success of the event.
