James Sturges, CEO of the Hospital Foundation is urging the community to register for Park2Park Virtual Fun Run, get active, and give as much as they can to support Virtual Healthcare in our region.

“With all that has been happening the past few months, there has never been a greater demand or need for Virtual Healthcare in our community, especially in regional areas.

“With your support, donations, and fundraising efforts, we can further support our community’s health in a more digital, contact-free way.

“Better yet, 100% of profits, fundraising and donations all support Virtual Healthcare and the Hospital Foundation”, Mr Sturges said.

This year, the community can show their support regionally and run (virtually) with a West Moreton Hospital too. As an individual or as part of a team, they can choose to virtually run with Ipswich, Boonah, Esk, Gatton, Laidley, or The Park Hospitals.
