On 22 October, we had the privilege of treating hundreds of riders and walkers who took part in the Melbourne OneDay To Conquer Cancer event with physiotherapy support.

In its inaugural year, more than 1,886 walkers and riders raised $1.7million for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Research Foundation. The gruelling event involved either a 60km or 100km ride, or 25km walk – with Melbourne’s rainy, cold weather not providing much relief for participants.

Thanks to our volunteer physiotherapists Steve Ooi, Nina Leggett and Stuart Imer who helped us on this special day and a huge congratulation to everyone who took part to support cancer research.

We can’t wait to do it all again next year.
