Emily to use fun run to raise money for Clown Doctors
Woy Woy resident Ms Emily Bowtell is getting ready to tackle the 2019 City-to-Surf fun run, in the process hoping to raise at least $750 for the Clown Doctors.
"I've seen firsthand the difference the Clown Doctors make to children, their families and the entire hospital community.
"Clown Doctors are medical clowns, highly trained, professional performers who spread 'doses' of fun and laughter throughout hospitals.
"Whether it be providing distraction during infusions, giving encouragement during a physio session or simply making a child feel less alone the Clown Doctors are an integral part of patient-centered care.
"All money raised will go towards ensuring that Clown Doctors can continue to spread joy and laughter to some of the most vulnerable members of our community, sick and injured kids," Ms Bowtell said.
Ms Bowtell, an active member of the Country Women's Association Woy Woy branch, will raise money in the lead-up to the fun run, which takes place in Sydney on August 11.
Anybody interested in donating can find her sponsorship page on the Everyday Hero website.
