100 Miles in a Month

Could you run 100 miles in February and raise funds for patient care in the Mater Hospital?

Funds raised by the 100 Miles in a Month Challenge this February will go directly towards the Mater Hospital’s expansion of ICU beds in direct response to Covid-19 and hopes to alleviate some of the pressure on the hospital’s existing ICU which has 18 beds.

This will make a huge difference in our fight against Covid-19, giving more vulnerable patients a chance at recovery whilst also increasing the overall ICU bed capacity in the country.

When the pandemic ‘subsides’ this additional capacity will allow the hospital to increase activity and reduce waiting lists, ensuring better outcomes for all patients and families.
