Reindeer Run a boost for hospital foundation

CHRISTMAS came early in Toowoomba yesterday with the staging of the annual Reindeer Run for the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation.

Toowoomba Hospital Foundation fundraising and events officer Libby Coghlan said the fundraiser was part of the Toowoomba Hospital Christmas Appeal.

"Today is our Reindeer Run for 2019 and we've had about 60 to 80 people come along today to run a 5km course around the Baillie Henderson Hospital campus.

"It's a bit of a fun day with families coming along and some walking the 5km as well, and there are people with prams and children."

Ms Coghlan said it was hoped yesterday's reindeer run would raise between $5000 and $8000.

"This event is actually part of the Toowoomba Hospital Christmas Appeal which runs from November through to the end of December," she said.

"We're hoping to raise $150,000 for the Cardiac Investigations Unit."
