City2City announces 2018 will help those with chronic lung disease
The countdown has begun for the 2018 Hume Bank City2City Run Walk with the announcement of next year’s beneficiary.
All proceeds raised for Albury Wodonga Health will be used to fund life-saving chronic lung disease equipment.
Co-Founder, Michelle Hudson, said 100 per cent of the events registration fees will go to support the purchase of an Endo Bronchial Ultra Sound Scope (E-BUS).
“This is a much needed piece of equipment that diagnoses chronic lung diseases”, Ms Hudson said.
“There’s a growing demand for this service locally and having the equipment on the Border would save unnecessary patient trips to Melbourne.
“This reduces pressure on patients and their families at a time when they need all their strength to get better.”
Ms Hudson added, “From today people can also get in early and register for the 2018 Hume Bank Run Walk.”
“Border people have really embraced the event since its beginning in 2015 and we’re hoping the community will again help us celebrate our cross border health service next year.
“As an added incentive, we’ve increased the prize money for our winners, as well as announcing a special lucky draw of $2,000 to be awarded at the finish line.”
The 2018 Hume Bank City2City Run Walk will take place on Sunday 18 February and will again travel from Albury CBD to Wodonga CBD incorporating two course lengths.
Registrations are now open to individuals and teams via www.city2city.org.au.
