Kids need to be able to be kids...

...that's why Run for Geelong’s Kids is raising much needed money so that Barwon Health can build a new kids rehabilitation centre.

Kids who are currently recovering from acute injury or illness do so in the adult rehabilitation centre which is predominantly occupied by elderly members of the community which doesn’t let kids recover in a way they need to. They can’t do things like play with a ball… play music… or spread their toys around and be kids because that compromises the adults’ recovery.

That’s why we’re on a mission to help raise much-needed funds to support Barwon Health Foundation’s Kids Appeal so they can build a new kids rehabilitation centre as soon as possible.

Run or walk at this event, enter as a virtual runner or make a donation and you’ll be helping our little hero’s recover faster as well.
