We’re running for St Vincent’s – join us

09-Mar-2018

The Fitzroy Board and Coaches have decided to put our considerable community support behind another great Fitzroy institution, St Vincent’s Hospital. St Vincent’s turns 125 years old this year (just 10 years younger than the Fitzroy Football Club) and we are entering a team in their annual Fun Run.

The Fun Run is at 9.30am on Sunday 15 April at Princes Park.

For the history buffs, way back in 1896 at the Annual meeting of the Fitzroy Football Club, a special thank you was offered to the staff and management of St Vincent’s Hospital for their help with injuries and accidents throughout the year. Then in 1941 in VFL days, Fitzroy and Carlton played a charity match to support the St Vincent’s Hospital Appeal. 

Let’s see what we can do to support them this year.

A Fitzroy Football Club team page has been set up and you are more than welcome to register – click on ‘Join us’ – or perhaps consider a donation towards the cause: https://events.stvfoundation.org.au/fundraiser/fitzroyfootballclub

Participants are being encouraged to wear their pyjamas in support of the 57,000 patients treated by the hospital per year.
