Seven paediatricians have gone from walking the wards to combing the coast as part of the Sydney Coastrek.
The group, made up of seven from Royal North Shore Hospital and one from Bankstown Hospital – participated in the 30 kilometre walk from Long Reef to Middle Head to help raise much needed funds for Beyond Blue.
Together, the two teams of four women raised $5840, with all walkers combining for a mammoth total of more than $1.6 million for Beyond Blue.
Dr Carola Wittekind said it was rewarding but also a tough trek, even if they managed to dodge the deluge of rain.
“The trek was not without challenges but together we got through, including climbing the endless stairs up to Middle Head Road right at the end,” she said.
