A/Prof Prue Cormie embarks on 300km "Ride for Sick Kids"
Published: Thursday 2nd February 2017
Trading in her hiking boots for a road bike, Associate Professor Prue Cormie is participating in this year’s Ronald McDonald House Charity's Ride for Sick Kids to raise much needed funds to support seriously ill children in Victoria.
Although this will be the first time in her life to ride a bike, Prue and her partner Brett will be navigating through 300km of the picturesque terrain surrounding Victoria’s Port Phillip Bay.
Motivating her is the determination to help raise over $500,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities based in the state, in particular Ronald McDonald House Parkville and Monash.
This cause lies close to the heart of A/Prof Cormie, whose research and clinical work focuses on the role of exercise in the management of cancer. Within the Australian Catholic University’s Institute of Health & Ageing, A/Prof Cormie’s research program seeks to understand the application of exercise as medicine for the management of cancer and involves the convergence of exercise science, cancer care and innovation in allied health services.
All funds raised by the Ride for Sick Kids four day event in March will go towards supporting seriously ill children and their families. To support A/Prof Cormie on her quest to help raise funds for Ronald McDonald House you can donate to the RMDH Ride for Sick Kids here.
All donations are tax deductible and will receive an automated tax receipt. For more information about the important work undertaken by the Ronald McDonald House, please visit www.rmhc.org.au.
