Total funds raised in 2018
Welcome to the Bendigo Bank Fun Run supporting Bendigo Health Foundation.
Thank you for jumping on our website and having a look at the 2018 Bendigo Bank Fun Run.
Are you looking for a challenge? Want a fit and fun way to raise money for our regional hospital? Or have you been coerced into participating in a fun run? Whatever reason we can help!
The Bendigo Bank Fun Run is our town’s biggest running event and the Bendigo Health Foundation’s major fundraiser for the year. In 2018, participants will also have the option to move through our ‘colour run stations’ positioned throughout the track!
Be part of this truly special day, support our regional hospital and challenge yourself for a good cause.
What are we fundraising for?
The Residential Care Appeal
Bendigo Health Residential Services has been providing aged care to our local community for more than 160 years, striving for excellence in aged care by providing the best clinical care from qualified registered and enrolled nurses. We have five aged care facilities in two great central locations Carshalton House Hostel and Golden Oaks Nursing Home in Golden Square and Joan Pinder Nursing Home, Stella Anderson Nursing Home and Simpkin House in North Bendigo.
A $3.5 million development to our Golden Oaks Complex is currently underway. This will link Carshalton House and Golden Oaks Nursing Home with a central entrance and incorporate a large lifestyle room, cinema, café, palliative care room and treatment room, staff room, management offices and new reception.
The new link building will bring many benefits for our residents including an improved lifestyle environment and updated living spaces. It will also allow for ageing in place, giving our residents the opportunity to be provided with individual care no matter what level of care is required.
