Maddock’s Foundation donate Vibrogym 

Long term Heartwell supporters Maddocks Lawyers have very kindly donated $15,000 this year to enable us to purchase a state of the art, vibration plate, known as a Vibro gym. Already some of the children who have been exposed to training on it have made progress in areas such as muscular strength, flexibility and balance. We are very excited about being able to offer it in our children’s programs particularly when most children have issues in those particular areas.

 

The Vibrogym now ranks along aside our Moto med as highly specific pieces of equipment. Thanks also to Ian Pearce from PPR Solutions who donated a terrific new treadmill to Heartwell after our ‘old faithful’ we have had for 10 years turned up its toes in April.

 

Ross Hocking from Maddocks came out to Heartwell recently and enjoyed a session with us and Maddock’s sponsored child, Katharine Hodder. Ross spent some time on the Vibrogym and was very impressed with its functionality, particularly for kids with additional physical needs.

Big thanks to Ross and all at Maddock’s who have contributed over $80,000 to Heartwell since 2003.
