GMHBA donates defibrillator to Lorne Surf Life Saving Club

GMHBA Health Insurance has donated a $2000 cheque to the Lorne Surf Lifesaving Club to purchase a defibrillator and keep people safe on the beach.

The health fund encouraged spectators and event patrons at January’s Pier to Pub and Mountain to Surf events to cycle on stationery bikes to reach five land marks and a total of 420km in an interactive community cycling challenge.

Event patrons were challenged to join in GMHBA’s cycling challenge and help accumulate as many kilometers as possible to reach our overall target of 420km’s across two days. The event weekend attracted many keen cyclists who supported the challenge and contributed to helping us build healthy communities.

In the end, we collectively covered 328km’s which was a brilliant result that we are very proud of.

GMHBA has decided to donate the funding regardless of the fact that the cycling challenge was just short of the full 420km target. The defibrillator will arm surf life savers with a critical tool to look after people who get into trouble on the beach.
