Camino de Compostela Fundraiser

November 13, 2018| Our Community /

Twenty-five weary participants have just returned home after completing the final section of the Spanish Camino de Compostela.

Walking 115km over six days they were blessed with perfect weather, some authentic historic farmhouse accommodation and knowledgeable guides.

Together the group raised a total of $75,000 towards the Concussion Clinic, research into Alzheimer’s Disease and Cancer Services at Epworth. 


The group included Medical Director of Rehabilitation Prof John Olver, head of the Musculoskeletal Clinical Institute Mr Andrew Tang, Epworth Executive Directors Maree Feery (People and Culture) and Carolyn Bell (Rehabilitation and Mental Health), Epworth Special Events Committee members Toni Joel and Veron Chua, former board members Philip Williams and Peter Hay and EMF representative Kathryn Johnston.

This was just one of the Epworth Medical Foundation’s annual charity challenges. To find out about other upcoming challenges visit their website or call 03 9426 8170.
