Welcome back to the Salus news.
I have just completed the much anticipated 2019 Adelaide Coastrek. If you have been to the Salus Foot Surgeon office at John Flynn Hospital recently, you would have noticed my fundraising efforts. I have been baking triple chocolate brownies! My staff and families, patients and hospital staff have been enjoying my brownies on a regular basis. The fundraising arm of Coastrek was to support Beyond Blue, to raise awareness and money to help those with mental health disorders. Overall the Adelaide Coastrek raised almost $1 million dollars for the Beyond Blue organisation. An amazing effort! Our team raised over $3500, which exceeded our fundraising goal. I hope that during the lead up to this hike, I have encouraged people to go outside as much as possible. To go for a walk, a run, a bike ride, whatever you find enjoyable and no matter how short. It will improve your own health and well being. Time spent in nature, combined with exercise, is a great way to keep you feeling good, and improve your own mental and physical health. I hope you take the time to be in the outdoors and go for a walk!
Here are a few snapshots to remind you of how beautiful the Australian coastline is. Here on the Gold Coast there are many beautiful beaches so take advantage of the sunny weather and go for a hike!
