Mater Private Hospital Bundaberg Allied Health Manager and Physiotherapist, Julie McGuiness, recently pulled on her runners and took part in the RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run, to support women with Breast Cancer.
Julie said the cause has touched those close to her.
“My immediate family and friends have been touched by cancer, so I feel strongly about doing what I can to help promote and bring awareness to the issue,” she said.
“I don’t know how many times I have said it, but I strongly believe having regular checks is essential to facilitate early detection and diagnosis of cancer where possible.
“I enjoy running and it has been a while since I’ve entered a fun run, so I was excited to participate this year.”
Julie participated in the Fun Run for the first time this year, registering for the ‘Your Way’ route which enables people to follow a mapped trek or create their own.
More than $1,685,000 has been raised by the community to support women with breast cancer, by investing in personalised, practical support services, equipment and potentially life-saving breast cancer research at Mater.
