The Bendigo Health Fundraising and Foundation team were delighted to welcome the Bendigo Ford Fun Run team to the hospital on Tuesday 14th February! Over 1000 people are predicted to run and walk through the streets of Bendigo to raise their heart rate and much-needed funds for Bendigo Health as part of the 2023 Bendigo Ford Fun Run on Sunday 5 March.
Local Bendigo heroes from the business sector and Bendigo Health have been championing the Bendigo Ford Fun Run across the community to help local kids.
This year’s run has a brand-new event, The Bendigo Business Challenge proudly supported by TSFN. Aimed at encouraging local organisations to participate, business and their staff can either run or walk the 5km distance. With various awards up for grabs, this event is to boost participation numbers, further supporting fundraising for Bendigo Health.
“Proceeds from the 2023 Bendigo Ford Fun Run will be donated to Bendigo Health Fundraising & Foundation to help establish an outdoor play space for local kids going through rehabilitation at Bendigo Health. More than 100 children and their families are treated by Bendigo Health’s rehabilitation services at any one time. Having a purpose-built play space will support their rehabilitation and recovery by making therapy more engaging and fun,” said Sarah McAdie, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Bendigo Health.
Of Bendigo Ford’s naming rights sponsorship, Donna Holt, Bendigo Ford said “We are so excited to be the major sponsor of the Bendigo Fun Run and to support a fabulous local cause and supporting our local people.”
