Ipswich Hospital Foundation’s Park2Park fun run is the flagship annual event raising vital funds for medical local research initiatives. This research is conducted by West Moreton Health researchers, here in our region looking into issues that affect our community.

Park2Park has been running for over19years and is a favourite among the community. The event encourages physical activity, community and togetherness and ensures that our people will have access to nearby healthcare for generations to come.
