A fun run and walk has made a difference to a medical facility in Mowbray.

The Mowbray Maternity Hospital was very happy to receive a donation of R40 000 from the organisers of the annual medical 10km fun run and walk and Life Healthcare Group to further develop and enhance the facility.

Known as the largest dedicated maternity hospital in Southern Africa, the hospital celebrates its centenary this year, a special milestone for the facility.

The hospital will be using the donation to buy a neonatal ultrasound probe, which will greatly benefit the babies in the neonatal unit.

Janine Joemat, CEO of Mowbray Maternity Hospital, says she is very grateful for the donation and the organisers for the generous contribution.

“On behalf of Western Cape government health and the management of Mowbray Maternity Hospital, we express our heartfelt thanks to the organising committee of the fun run and walk,” she says.

“We want to thank them not only for a well organised and fun event, but also for their generosity and support of Mowbray Maternity Hospital.”

Established in 1978, the fun run brings together professionals across medical disciplines, both from private and public health facilities, to publically display an active and healthy lifestyle in order to motivate their patients to do the same.
