Pete’s daughter was a patient of the Paediatrics Unit for nearly 2 years. First hand he witnessed the devotion of the staff to helping sick kids recover. Naturally, Pete wanted to give something back therefore all proceedings (after running costs) are given to the Paediatrics Unit in support of their commitment to the health and well being of our kids. It has been wonderful to see former patients of the Paediatrics Unit and their parents, return annually to participate in the Fun Run.
Obviously the gratitude they feel is enormous and the event has a special connection with them. So why not become a part of it too? The Hobart Fun Run is the only Fun Run with a route along Hobart’s picturesque waterfront. You can choose either 2.5km or 5km distances with the option to run or walk. Prams and wheelchairs are also welcome and we extend a very warm welcome to those in our community with special needs.
