The C3 Cyclists 2017 Team is riding by bicycle 665 kilometres from Canberra, ACT to Sydney, NSW.
Together, they are looking to fundraise over $40,000 to supply Cooma District Hospital, Bega District Hospital and Fairfield Hospital with much-needed medical equipment. In consultation with Humpty Dumpty Foundation, C3 Cyclists have identified that Cooma District Hospital, Bega District Hospital and Fairfield Hospital have urgent needs for critical life-saving equipment that is fundamental for the ongoing care of sick children and babies of their surrounding communities.
The Equipment for the South East Regional Hospital, Bega A T34 SYRINGE PUMP X 2: $2,400 EACH ($4,800)
This infusion system is used to deliver predetermined doses of antibiotics or pain relieving medication to a child. This syringe pump ensures the child will receive life-saving medication in very small volumes at a strictly controlled rate which improves the outcome. This equipment is vital.
In total, C3 Cyclists has raised over $150,000 for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation since 2010. C3 Cyclists, in partnership with C3 Beyond, have ridden thousands of kilometres to raise this money to provide essential medical equipment needed to improve the quality of childcare in regional Australian Hospitals such as Bathurst Base Hospital, Port Macquarie Base Hospital, Nambour General Hospital, Bourke District Hospital, Queanbeyan District Hospital and this year, Fairfield Hospital, Cooma Hospital and Bega Hospitals.
