Our Parkrun team has been growing with each event, with more and more people joining the crew!
Parkrun is a free, 5km event that takes place every Saturday morning, where you can walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate. Parkrun has been gaining momentum with our clients and staff and we want many more to get involved!
Altona was the latest location, with Cameron and Bob, two Yooralla clients joining their support workers, Service Manager and Yooralla staff members Alana, Craig, Megan, Terry and Mel for the occasion.
As well as the health and wellbeing benefits of getting out and about in the community, Cameron and Bob were invaluable in hyping the team up on the day – with Cameron bringing his speakers along to play dance music throughout the run to keep the participants motivated!
Bob, a former Hospital to Home client who has since been receiving ongoing support from Yooralla, was encouraging the participants, telling them what a great job they were doing and how much he was enjoying being part of the day. He said Parkrun, “was one of the best things he has done since coming out of hospital”.
After the event, the crew hit Crème, the local cafe for a well-deserved coffee!
The next parkrun will be held on Saturday 24 June from 8am-12pm at Gardiners Creek Reserve, Holland Avenue, Burwood.
