Save the date! Sunday 26 March 2017
Community support and generosity have been central to the story of St Vincent's since our beginnings as a small cottage hospital in 1890s. Back then, we relied entirely on charitable donations to survive and thrive.
Over a century later, we take our place as Victoria's leading teaching hospital. We provide medical and surgical services, emergency and aged care, mental health, palliative and residential care. We reach out to hundreds of thousands of Victorians every year, caring for people from all walks of life.
All this would not be possible without your generosity and support through events such as this. The benefits your registration and subsequent fundraising efforts bring to St Vincent’s are reflected in our patients' positive experiences, in the caring environment created by our staff, and in the innovative research and training underway in our labs and training centres.
Join St Vincent's hospital's nurses, doctors and support staff as we run for a reason.
St Vincent's Scrubs Run is open to everyone – whether you are a member of staff or not. So please, Join Us in support of a worthy cause.
When it comes to fundraising, this year we are doing things just a little bit differently.
We invite you to join one of our Sponsored teams, each of which have been identified as requiring vital funds in order to continue their work and improve upon outstanding patient care.
- St Vincent's Emergency Department
- The Cottage (Sr Francesca Healy Cottage)
- St Vincent's Mental Health Department
- The Good Samaritan Fund
If you are a member of the hospital, or have a connection to a particular area, we do not discourage you from fundraising for your chosen ward/department. You can create your own team through your everyday hero account as per previous years.
For further information on this years fundraising model, and why we've selected the above beneficiaries, head to our 'Fundraising' page.
All participants who fundraise over $200 will be entered into a fundraisers prize draw.
From 9.30am, Sunday 26 March 2017 – full program details to come
At Princes Park, Carlton North
Princes Park is just 3km from the Melbourne CBD in Carlton North, right near Melbourne University. Other than the Tan Track, it is probably Melbourne’s most popular running venue. The park is circumnavigated by an uninterrupted 3.2km running circuit and it’s almost perfectly flat.
The main event area is located at Lawn 3 Royal Parade near Levers Street/Royal Parade.
How to get there? Click Here to view location on map.
- Parking is available on the adjacent streets to the Park; however we recommend you take a tram.
- Tram #19 (from Elizabeth Street along Royal Parade to Stop 15); Or
- Tram #1 (to Melbourne Cemetery and walk West a few hundred metres)
Visit www.ptv.vic.gov.au to plan your journey.
Last year's event raised over $60,000 for nominated hospital departments and wards. This demonstrates how strong and vibrant the St Vincent's community is with 44 teams across the community, public and private hospitals taking part.
Let's see if we can't better that result this year!
St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne
As a tertiary public healthcare service, St Vincent’s provides acute medical and surgical services, emergency and critical care, aged care, diagnostics, rehabilitation, allied health, mental health, palliative care and residential care, as well as undertaking research and educating the next generation of healthcare professionals. We have over 5,000 staff and 848 beds.
St Vincent’s strives to never lose sight of what makes our service unique. We understand that each patient is an individual with their own hopes and fears. We acknowledge the whole person, not just their illness. The essence of St Vincent’s lies in our approach to the smaller, day-to-day interactions with our community; these are the defining moments that transform care from good to exceptional.
