Project Partner – Cotton On
The Cotton On Group are the major project partner of the Barwon Health Foundation. The Cotton On Group support major projects at Barwon Health via their Run Geelong event.
Since the inaugural Run Geelong in 2009, the growth has been extraordinary, from 2,100 participants raising $78,000 in 2009 to a record breaking 12,062 participants raising over half a million dollars 2013, a great kick-start for our second project, the redevelopment of the Special Care Nursery at Geelong Hospital.
Following on from the first partnership project completion, the redevelopment of the Children's Ward at Geelong Hospital, the Special Care Nursery was identified as an area requiring urgent attention for the benefit of new born infants, their mothers and the clinical staff in the unit.
The nursery has since been opened and Cotton On are now preparing for Run Geelong 2015 and their next project the maternity services area at University Hospital Geelong.
