Physios raise funds and awareness to improve the health of Australians in need

The SOS Health Foundation spearheaded by a team of passionate APA member physiotherapists has raised over $20,000 to fund the delivery of physiotherapy services to disadvantaged Australians at the inaugural SOS Winter Gala fundraising event.

The SOS Winter Gala held at Melbourne’s Wonderland Spiegeltent, was attended by over 200 physiotherapists, allied health professionals, industry partners, family and friends. The spectacular venue combined with live entertainment and the ‘Deco Manhattan’ theme made for a magical evening of raising awareness, entertainment and fundraising efforts including a live and silent auction of donated items.

The work of the SOS Health Foundation relies on the support of volunteers to make a sustainable impact in improving the health of Australians impacted by poverty.

“Our volunteer physios have the most amazing opportunities and experiences as they work with people in urban and small remote communities affected by disadvantage right here in Australia. We would love to hear from physios and related health providers who are interested in volunteering their time and skills for our remote outreach programs or urban initiatives.”
