Closing the Gap Sports Day Postponement

Friday, March 01, 2019

In line with Eastern Health’s extreme weather policy, we have made the decision to postpone the Closing the Gap Sports Day. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, participants and the community is paramount. Eastern Health has deemed it unsafe for our staff and community to participate in the sporting events in such high temperatures. We are disappointed that we cannot hold this event this weekend, as it is a real highlight for our organisation and the local community. We look forward to holding the event on another date in the near future, to continue our commitment to Closing the Health Gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-indigenous Australians. We will advise our staff and the community of the new date once confirmed.
