Hospital supports employee cycling for cancer cure
A local hospital has donated $500 to one of its employees who took part in the 2019 Tour de Cure.
Ms Lisa Healey rode 1400km from Sydney to Geelong to raise funds for cancer research, support services and awareness.
"I don't take my health for granted," she said.
"Having family members, friends and colleagues impacted by cancer, riding for Tour de Cure is my way of making a difference in the fight against this terrible disease," Ms Healye said.
As part of her campaign, Ms Healey, who works in the cafe at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital, set herself a fundraising goal of $12,000.
As of May 22, she had raised $10,590 for Tour de Cure.
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital donated $500.
Hospital chief executive Ms Kathy Beverley said the hospital was proud of Ms Healey and supported her in this worthy cause.
Ms Healey is still accepting donations through the Tour de Cure website.
