A team from Sydney Adventist Hospital joined the thousands of competitors who stepped out for this year’s City2Surf fun run in Sydney on August 13.
Twenty-two “San Steppers” participated in the annual race from Sydney’s CBD to Bondi Beach, a distance of 14 kilometres.
It was not only a test of their fitness, but the event also gave the runners an opportunity to fundraise for charity. The team raised more than $14,000, which will contribute significantly to supporting the vital services and programs provided by San Foundation.
“It was great to walk side by side with staff members from so many different parts of the hospital . . . physicians and nurses walking alongside hospital executives, all stepping up to support our colleagues providing world-class care to cancer patients at the San,” said San Foundation managing director Judy Tanna.
“We are planning for an even bigger team next year, and are hoping more staff members are keen to sign up to be a San Stepper next year.”
