October 15th, 2022Raising money for palliative care at home
DUO, Hayden Walsh and Karen O’Sullivan, who recently launched
their book If I can, you can, are teaming up once again for a special
project and asking the community to participate in the Mount
Macedon Realty: Wooling Hill Run 2022 this month to raise funds for
Kyneton Health’s Palliative Care in the Home program.
Hayden and Karen, who are both much-loved members of the Kyneton
community, are putting the call out to their family, friends and neighbours to get
behind this cause by participating or donating to help their local health service
provide end-of-life care in people’s home.
They’ve signed up and have committed to walk the beautiful 1.2km, all-abilities
course that can be walked, run or wheeled as many times as participants chose until
Hayden said he wanted to inspire people of all abilities to sign up for the Mount
Macedon Realty: Wooling Hill Run 2022. “Karen and I would like you to join us on
Sunday 30 October to walk a lap of the course on the final day. Let’s get together and
raise some money.”
Karen said Hayden continued to inspire her and many others with his passion
for life and the wellbeing of others. “As a member of the Central Highlands Rural
Health board of directors, I know first-hand how important it is for the community
to support their local health care service.”
Event hosts Troy and Liddy Upfield from Wooling Hill Memorial Estate, and
major sponsor Lisa Fowler from Mount Macedon Realty, are aiming to raise $60,000
to purchase a new van to transport essential equipment, including electrical hospital
beds and air mattresses, wheelchairs, and other mobility aids to and from clients’
homes to enable specialist community nursing staff to provide the best end-of-life
care and support in the home for clients and their carers.
The Mount Macedon Realty: Wooling Hill Run 2022 is open for participants
to sign up any time until October 30 at the Wooling Hill Memorial Estate, New
Gisborne. Individual and team entries are welcome.
