Isis’ first Park2Park experience was unlike any other Fun Run

As part of her 2020 goal, Isis made an oath to herself: to get out of her comfort zone and participate more in her community.

“There’s a first time for everything and it was time to give Park2Park a go.”

Isis’ first Park2Park experience had a little twist – she ran the route VIRTUALLY.

What made the run extra fun this year?

RUNNING ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

Isis could choose when and where she wanted to run.

“My bestie and I drove to Mount Coot-tha before dawn, then ran up the Summit Track – made it just in time for a breathtaking sunrise at the lookout!”

“There’s nothing better than taking a break with a rewarding view,” Isis claimed.

YOU CAN SPLIT UP YOUR RUN

“I initially wanted to run 2.5km. But I decided to push myself further,”

Isis chose to break up a 10km run over a week.

A few days after her first run, she embarked on another journey at Castle Hill Blackstone Reserve and completed its Lewis Thomas Historical Trail.

There are plenty of trails in Ipswich that make running or walking more fun and challenging.

“Hopefully by next year, I’ll be able to finish a full 10km in one go!” she declared.

 THE BIGGER PICTURE: VIRTUAL HEALTHCARE

Whilst Isis was boosting her cardio, she was also supporting Virtual Healthcare.

“As a student having to transition to online classes in the middle of a pandemic; I’ve recognised the importance of virtual services,”

“If my classes can be implemented virtually, Healthcare services should be accessed digitally too.”

Virtual Healthcare can help prevent any risk of transmission between patients and staff to ease access to services that would greatly benefit the community.
