A prescription for exercise

5 March 2021

Austin Health’s 1000 Minute Challenge is underway, challenging our community to get their 30 minutes of exercise a day.

The challenge started on Monday, with supporters aiming to run, walk, ride or swim for 30 minutes each day in March, to raise funds for their ‘healthcare heroes’ at Austin Health.

Close to 1500 people have already signed up, and raised over $96,000 for hospital equipment.

There is still time to join, or to sponsor an existing participant or team.

Foundation director Debbie Shiell urges the community to “help support their healthcare heroes”.
