TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH FOR CHARITY
You’re 63 metres in the air, hanging from one of the light towers at the home of the Gold Coast Suns, Metricon Stadium, and you’re about to participate in a once in a life time experience that will help purchase lifesaving medical equipment and deliver vital support for local patients who are facing medical challenges and hardship.
YOU’RE ABOUT TO ABSEIL TO HELP SOMEONES LIFE! Book now to participate in this amazing event!
Team Health has partnered with Gold Coast Hospital Foundation to tackle the Gold Coast Airport Marathon on 1-2 July 2017 – and it’s all to help local patients and their families overcome hardship. Team Health’s runners will hit the pavement to raise much-needed funds for the Foundation that will significantly benefit ill or injured children and adults at Gold Coast University Hospital, Robina Hospital and other Gold Coast Health facilities in the community.
Each runner will commit to raising a minimum of $300 for the Foundation with the dedicated support from family, friends and colleagues. All funds raised will make a huge difference to improving patient care and public health services on the Gold Coast, and will help the Foundation deliver vital support services for patients and families, purchase lifesaving medical equipment, complete hospital refurbishment projects, and provide high quality education for Gold Coast Health staff.
Every little contribution adds up, so please get on board and support Team Health’s marathoners with a generous donation today.

In July 2015 Gold Coast Hospital Foundation took over management and funding of a dedicated transport service for local cancer patients (previously known as Monique’s Bus).
With three new buses on the road, five days per week, since commencing this vital service has helped relieve the financial and emotional distress associated with regular treatment, travel and parking worries for more than 970 individual patients. One patient who regularly uses the service, Lisa (pictured), said:
“I couldn’t have got through my treatment without the transport service. I don’t know what else to say. I have no idea what I would do if the bus didn’t exist.”
On behalf of the patients who cannot afford parking and travel costs and/or have no one to drive them to appointments, we thank you for helping fund this service through donations and sponsorships.
