In 2019, C3 Cyclists are riding 740km (7815m elevation) from Tamworth to Newcastle, through the beautiful Hunter Region to raise $75,000 for Humpty Dumpty Foundation. Through Humpty, we will be able to donate life saving medical equipment to Tamworth, Cessnock and John Hunter (Newcastle) Hospitals to help save kids’ lives! (We hope to be able to donate to more!)
Advisio is proud to be a sponsor of the team and directly contributing to this fundraising effort.
Who is it for?
Humpty Dumpty is still compiling the list. Equipment identified includes:
Tamworth Rural Referral Hospital, Children’s Ward and Special Care Nursery
EZ-IO DRILL & EDUCATOR KIT: $1,895 EACH 2 needed
This power drill kit is an essential piece of resuscitation equipment used to gain vascular access in critically ill children and babies when intravenous access cannot be established. The drill kit is used to place a needle into the bone within 10 seconds, through which life-saving medication and fluids can then be administered. Achieving vascular access is vital to the resuscitation process and has life-saving consequences. The kit also comes with training devices used for staff education and practice of this vital procedure.
RAD-5 PULSE OXIMETER WITH SENSOR: $1,760 EACH 2 needed
Accurate measurement of a pulse rate, oxygen saturation and blood flow is essential in assessing the current status and treatment implications for paediatric patients. The Rad-5 (handheld) allows nurses to record arterial oxygen levels accurately and efficiently and quickly track any changes.
This years tour will start in Tamworth, NSW (Tamworth Hospital) and proceed to Gloucester, then to Cessnock for three days of rolling countryside in the Hunter Region! On the final day we will ride into Newcastle and finish at C3 People (C3 NC, Merryweather NSW).
