Parkrun is a free 5km run/walk/stroll at many locations across Australia at 8am every Saturday.
The ‘Newy’ parkrun attracts 400-600 participants each week and is an opportunity for us to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation to a large community group who are focused on fitness and well being.
Join us and talk with people about organ and tissue donation, the importance of registering their donation decision and discussing those wishes with loved ones.
