Tweed staff fundraise for cancer
STAFF from The Tweed Hospital swam, ran and rode in an effort to raise money for breast cancer research this week.
About 15 staff members from various departments including pharmacy, administration, coronary care and physio competed in the Gold Coast leg of the Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink All Women Series at the Runaway Bay Sports Supercentre on Sunday.
All proceeds raised from the event were donated to the National Breast Care Foundation.
The Tweed Hospital triathlon team captain Lauren Hill said 15 staff members participated in the event.
“This triathlon was a great opportunity for staff to come together and work as a team, while raising money for such an important cause as breast cancer research,” Miss Hill said.
“It was great because it also provided everyone with an opportunity to exercise and enjoy socialising with other staff who work within the hospital.
More than 10,000 females have crossed the finish line and $450,000 has been raised for the National Breast Cancer Foundation since The Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink Series started in 2007.
