What is this Aged Care CEO running away for?
The weather was unpleasant when David Knight recently ran 11kms, around Wyee Point Lifestyle Community, with the East Coast Low bearing down on him. However, David being a typical runner, was not deterred and hit the pavement, running 10 laps in total. Despite the weather, residents put on their winter woollies and with raincoats and umbrellas, enthusiastically watched, cheering at every lap. The Wyee Point residents themselves raised an impressive $1,700 towards the Black Dog Institute with an overall total of just over $2000 being raised.
“Running is something I enjoy. I keep active and give back all in one. The Black Dog Institute is particularly close to my heart”, David Knight said. David has always liked to keep fit and has had to adapt through these unusual COVID-19 times to make sure his fitness and fundraising efforts are not hindered. Black Dog Institute research indicates that 1 in 5 people will experience symptoms of mental illness in a given year. Fundraising such as what David has achieved will go towards making a difference in the lives of people who experience these symptoms.
Adventist Senior Living have always promoted a healthy lifestyle, and are pleased to have a CEO that leads by example. Adventist Senior Living are proud of David’s efforts and would like to congratulate him.
Thank you, David, and thank you Wyee Point Lifestyle Community for your support.
