Taking part in the Pat Farry Trust Fun Run and Walk 19-Mar-2014

March 19, 2014 10:52 pm

Kiera and Noeline from national office were up at the crack of dawn to take part in the Pat Farry Fun Run/ Walk around Wellington Waterfront in mid- March, supported by friends from The Walking Access Commission, Landcorp and Chorus.

The late Dr Pat Farry was a passionate advocate for rural health. A Trust set up in his name continues his work by providing educational scholarships, which have benefited nine medical students since 2010, who will go on to become rural GPs.

The Trust’s annual Fun Run/Walk supports this scholarship. It is held at the same time as the Rural General Practice Network Conference. National councillors sponsored our staff on the Fun Run/Walk this year.

If you’d like to support the team and the Trust, you can make a donation  via the Givealittle website, or post a cheque to national office.
