Vibrant colours and a message of hope now greet visitors of the Mount Druitt Hospital Children’s Ward.
The messages of support for patients and staff were scrawled by runners at the conclusion of the inaugural RunWest running festival earlier this year.
Blacktown Council’s Better Foundation, the official fundraising organisation for Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospitals, was one of the partner charities supported by NAB RunWest.
Better Foundation chief executive Nermeen Yacoub said hundreds of runners took the time to write messages of support and appreciation for the work the medical and nursing staff do every single day.
“This wall hangs in the main corridor of the hospital near the kids’ ward, not only brightening up the space but also as a reminder to hospital staff that our local community appreciates what they do to keep our families healthy and safe,” Nermeen said.
