Staff at Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy and Your Podiatry Canberra once again donated their time and skills on 6 September to raise vital funds for SOS Health Foundation in their annual fundraising event – work4significance® Day.
Each year we support work4significance® Day, with money raised funding hands-on physio and healthcare services that improve the health of Australians living in poverty.
This year, for every treatment including massage, podiatry and physiotherapy that we provided on September 6, we will donate a similar service to a person who is disadvantaged due to homelessness or living in remote communities – Treatment for Treatment.
As was the case last year, both of our Gungahlin and City West practices were involved in the fundraising event. This year we provided 88 physio, podiatry and massage treatments to clients. Through this fundraising event we will provide the same amount of treaments to those in need.
“One in Eight Australians live below the poverty line and 58% of these are indigenous. Those living in remote communities are further disadvantaged by having limited, irregular or no access to health services such as physiotherapy and podiatry. It is great to make a difference in these remote areas”
Since 2012, Sport & Spinal Physiotherapy has been involved in SOS Health Foundation missions to North East Arnhem Land and Palm Island. We sponsor therapists to provide much needed physiotherapy services for these remote areas.
