Jodie Downes is in training
It may look like Jodie is relaxing and getting a lovely massage, but this is serious training and preparation, under strict supervision by Physio Amalia (Back In Motion, Blackwood SA), to ensure Jodie is ready for and can complete the 35km Long Walk on Sunday, 13 September in Adelaide.
Jodie is on a mission to raise funds to support health initiatives for those who can least afford them. She has personally volunteered on Palm Island in North Queensland where SOS Health is working with this indigenous community to manage chronic diseases like Diabetes, pain management and generally improve their health and fitness. Until SOS Health began working on Palm Island, the community had limited and irregular allied health services available to them. Jodie continues to volunteer her time and expertise to assist the resident physio there with administration training and support to ensure he has more time to provide much needed health services.
“What better cause to WALK for?” says Jodie.
