HBF Run for a Reason

This May, our incredible burns families and clinical teams, our valued supporters and the FWF research team are lacing up their sneakers to participate in the HBF Run for a Reason!

We aim to have at least 20 awesome runners, walkers, and wheelers join our team, FWF Cool Runnings, and we would love to have you join us for this fantastic event.

By choosing US as your reason, you will be helping us support our incredible burns occupational and physiotherapy teams by stocking their wish list of items to support our adult burn patients on their recovery journey.

Our OTs would like support in purchasing complex Lego sets specifically selected for our adult LEGO therapy programs. Utilising LEGO for fine motor skills rehabilitation not only aids in physical recovery but also enhances our patients' mental health and overall well-being, motivating them to remain on their rehabilitation journey.

The physio team is seeking support in adding more patient-centred items, such as extra rollers, tennis racquets and balls, mini footballs, and trampolines, to their resource kits. Physiotherapy plays a vital role in the overall rehabilitation process, helping to improve functional outcomes, reduce scar formation, and enhance the quality of life for burn survivors.

It's not too late to join our team! The HBF Run for a Reason is for everyone, welcoming first-timers and seasoned runners alike. Whether you prefer a leisurely 4 km walk with Team Cool, a moderate 12 km run, or a challenging half marathon, there's a category for everyone. All you need to do is decide and register using our team link by  CLICKING HERE.

Beyond the fundraising, this event is an incredible opportunity to get together with friends, family, and colleagues and spread awareness of burns and our impactful work at the Foundation.

So, let's lace up those sneakers, hit the pavement, and make every step count.
