TAKE A WALK FOR TASSIE MEDICAL RESEARCH

Thursday, 9 July 2020 - 11:32am

Missing those travel experiences that you’d planned for further afield?  How about relishing the beauty of our own backyard? 

Feel like indulging yourself after so many months cocooned away?  Seeking to stretch out and embrace a stunning Springtime in a special part of the world?

Wanting to ease back into some fitness with just the right level of challenge – while finishing up with fine food and wine each day?

Well, we’re keen to help!  The RHH Research Foundation has partnered with the team from the Tasmanian Walking Company to present a fantastic four-day experience on our island’s beautiful east coast from Thursday 15 October 2020 that will also help fund vital local medical research for all Tasmanians, now and into the future.

The Bay of Fires Lodge Walk offers a breathtaking journey, exploring secluded coves while walking the beaches, before closing the day in award-winning accommodation where all meals are prepared for you to enjoy with local wines. You can even take the option of spa treatments in the awe-inspiring wilderness, head out to kayak on Ansons River, or simply curl up with your selection from the Lodge’s library.

Most importantly, this exciting experience, where you will not only get the opportunity explore our beautiful state at the perfect time of year, will also contribute to the health and wellbeing of the community while supporting local tourism.  There’s never been a better time to explore one of the most stunning parts of our island home!  

HOW DO I WALK AND RAISE FUNDS?

Guests are invited to use this unique trek as an opportunity to raise funds for local medical research.  Each participant is challenged to raise (or simply donate) $1,000 and, in addition, the Tasmanian Walking Company will also contribute $500 per guest.  These funds will go directly to the RHH Research Foundation for life-saving medial research as part of our next grant round.

The need for funding never stops.  Local medical research saves lives.
