Monash Children’s Hospital Walk – Making strides for young lives

It’s that time of year again! 

The annual Monash Children’s Hospital Walk is fast approaching and we’re excited to see as many Monash Health employees involved as possible. 

The walk was founded by the Friends of the Children’s Foundation in 2012, and since its inception has raised $1.4 million for the Monash Children’s Hospital (MCH). 

This year we are aiming to raise $500,000 of funds for the Gait Lab at MCH. The Gait Lab forms part of a state-wide Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service designed to improve the abilities of children and young people following major injury, illness, or medical procedures that affect their mobility. 

So step into your favourite walking (or running) shoes and join us in making strides for young lives on what’s set to be a fabulous day out.
