The Major Trauma Services Department in the Royal Melbourne Hospital treats up to 4,000 trauma patients every year, about 1,000 of them classified as major trauma.
The sad reality is, people who suffer major trauma can die from their injuries or condition. The Trauma Centre has a designated room, known as the Relatives Room for medical staff to inform and comfort the relatives of the deceased. They need funds to create more facilities and a more suitable atmosphere than currently exists in this room. The annual Run for Love event is held solely to raise money for this purpose.
Run for Love is organised and hosted by FCG and proudly sponsored by Caydon. It’s a great way to have fun with friends and family, meet new people, work on your fitness and help a worthwhile cause along the way.
Everyone can Run for Love around Fawkner Park between 10.00am and 2.00pm on the 11th of September. Check the timetable below. Registration is just $10 and this includes a free Run for Love T Shirt.
