Federal and state parliamentarians were among the 800 participants in this year’s Sydney Adventist Hospital Run for Life on Sunday morning.
Federal MP and Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher and State MPs Matt Kean and Alister Henskens took part in the event, which was officially kicked off by Hornsby Mayor Philip Ruddock who fired the starter’s gun.
The event raised more than $A30,000 for the renovation of bathrooms and kitchens at the San’s Cancer Support Centre, which provides support and information groups, education, counselling, wigs, massages and transport—all at no charge. The centre offers anyone in the community who has cancer, or whose loved one has cancer, a calm, caring and safe place to receive the support they need.
The San’s medical records department team, the “Record Breakers”, raised $3677 and entered both the 10km run and the 5km walk. A number of local schools and corporate teams also participated in the event.
