Northern Health’s Run Walk ‘n Chalk 2018

On Sunday, 20 May, the Northern Health Foundation hosted the 2018 Northern Health Run Walk ‘n Chalk.

The event was held at The Northern Hospital, Epping, as we took over Cooper Street, covering it with colourful chalk as participants completed the 3km course.

Entertainment included a live DJ and the talented local youth musician Helena Riley. There was also plenty of family friendly activities with the Northern Clinical School Teddy Bear Hospital and the Orthopaedics Unit providing a bandage canvas for kids to chalk and draw on just to name a few.

All proceeds raised from the fun and colourful event will be going to the Northern Health paediatric unit, supporting sick kids in our northern community.

We would like to thank all our sponsors including City of Whittlesea, Lalor Bowling Club, Automotive Lease Packaging, First State Super, ISS, Melbourne Market Authority and as well as the Northern Health Orthopedics Unit and the Northern Clinical School.

We’d also like to thank our MC Northern Health paediatric nurse, Jay Samuel, our Northern Health volunteers and staff who assisted on the day, making it one to remember.
