The Resuscitators - Running to save lives

Swapping medical and surgical uniforms for running gear, a team of intensive care unit staff from Sydney Adventist Hospital will be amongst the 1000 expected San Fun Run entrants fundraising for cancer services on Sunday November 13th.

‘The Resuscitators’ includes intensive care unit manager Chris Waite, intensive care specialist Dr Mason Reeder, Educator Emma Smith and nurse Rebecca Brown who will walk or run the 5 or 10km course starting from the Hospital front lawn.

“The San Intensive Care Unit treats 2000 seriously ill people a year helping them get well” says manager Chris Waite.

“It can be stressful and intense but the staff all have a great sense of humour and appreciate their own good health. As life-savers, entering a San Fun Run Team ‘The Resuscitators’ was an obvious choice. We want to help save lives before people get sick by encouraging health and wellness.”

Keen marathon runner San intensive care nurse Rebecca Brown was the 10th woman across the line in the 42 kilometre Auckland Marathon on October 30th, and says nursing and running are both great passions.

“ Running outdoors and being healthy gives me a real buzz, and intensive care nursing is the same. I love helping people through traumatic or difficult times and getting them on the road to recovery.”

The team paraded their mixed medical and running clothes with fun run mascots, San Bear and ‘Resus Annie’, the intensive unit medical mannequin used for advanced life-saving training. (Pictured)
