Our podiatrists have a busy month with Pro Feet Podiatry being involved in two local fun runs:
Run for Geelong’s kids and Afterglow Twilight night trail run in Torquay.
Run for Geelong’s Kids
Pro Feet Podiatry helped with the Run for Geelong’s Kids on Sunday the 18th November. The run was to raise much needed money so that Barwon Health can build a new kids rehabilitation centre.
Currently any kids who require this service need to do so in the adult rehabilitation centre. It is predominantly occupied by elderly members of the community which doesn’t let kids recover in a way they need to.
The rehab centre is for kids recovering from acute injury or illness, they no longer need to stay in hospital but they are far from being well enough to go home. We believe they should have access to first class, state of the art facilities that help to positively impact their recovery. That’s why we are on a mission to help raise much-needed funds to support Barwon Health Foundation’s Kids Appeal. So they can reach their goal of a new kids rehabilitation centre as soon as possible.
Did you know? Each year 156 kids from our region require rehabilitation due to spinal cord injury, stroke or brain injury.
The Afterglow Event
The Afterglow Event will be held in Torquay on Saturday 24th November, it is a twilight trail run of three different distances: 5km, 13km, 21km.
The team from Pro Feet will be sponsoring and attending this event so we hope to see you there.
Make sure you say hi if you see us there, we love keeping people Active, Healthy and Happy!
