ECU Sprint Team compete in The Great South West Bed Race

Wednesday, 18 April 2018


On Saturday, 7 April 2018 a team of ECU South West Campus staff and students competed in The Great South West Bed Race CEO Sprint. The sprint required teams to strap their bosses to hospital beds, racing 160m through the Bunbury CBD.

The Great South West Bed Race is organised by St John of God Bunbury Hospital, raising funds for cancer and cardiac services in the South West, bringing care closer to home for South West residents.

The event featured two races; the first, a short sprint in which participants were pushed on old hospital beds while dodging water balloons thrown from the crowd. The main event was a longer, more competitive race.

Congratulation to Dean Lyn Farrell, Tonje Bjerkan, Melanie Buhlmann, Lachlan Williams, Emma Franklin and Fiona Bailey on an injury free 3rd place.
