Support REDDY Fun Run
REDDY Fun Run was first held in 2020 and is a grassroots fun run to promote health and wellbeing while raising funds for Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital.
Redcliffe Hospital staff members and Peninsula locals, Rhonda Neal and Brooke Starkey-Luke started the event by donating entry fees from the cancelled Gold Coast Marathon in 2020 to Raise it for Redcliffe Hospital and do their own run to raise even more. The inaugural REDDY Fun Run featured 60 starters and raised $4,700.
Redcliffe Hospital Fundraising Manager, Sharyn Tidswell, says the funds raised from the first REDDY Fun Run went a long way to supporting important initiatives.
"Donations raised last year contributed to half the funding for the inaugural Raise it for Redcliffe Wishlist Grants 2020, including a shade sail for a staff break area, Staff Wellness Group initiatives, bereavement room for Women’s and Newborn Services, and an ultrasound training program for junior doctors."
Fundraising target is set
The 2021 fundraising has already eclipsed last year's total with nearly $6,000 raised.
"We would love to raise over $10,000 this year which will again go straight to supporting the Raise it for Redcliffe Wishlist Grants."
"People can also get on board by turning up on Sunday 20 June and cheering on the runners and walkers participating in the REDDY Fun Run," says Sharyn.
