Adroit sets the pace in Ballarat
At Adroit, our commitment to making a difference in the local communities in which we operate is a core part of our organisation and values.
Recently, our Ballarat Branch was awarded the top prize in the Professional Service category at the Ballarat Business Excellence Awards. Being recognised by our community is certainly a great honour, second only to collaborating with groups like Run Australia.
“We endeavour to make a difference by consciously giving of ourselves, our time and our resources. Our endeavours in co-organising Run Ballarat helps to fund the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward of the local Public Hospital and in turn, provides an asset which brings security and surety for future generations.” – Damon Edwards – Managing Principal of Adroit Insurance Group, Ballarat
Being involved in the local community is truly a rewarding experience and we continually seek opportunities where possible to do so – such as continued involvement with Run Ballarat.
More than just a “fun run”, Run Ballarat has made a significant contribution to the Children’s Ward at Ballarat Base Hospital since 2012. Our continued involvement sees a five-year commitment to support the much-needed redevelopment of the Paediatric and Adolescent Unit. The redeveloped space will include extra beds, updated technology, and additional support services with a commitment from Run Ballarat to fund half of the project.
How can you get involved? With a range of fun runs for both adults and children, there’s something for everyone! If strapping on the sneakers yourself isn’t an appealing option, there are plenty of other ways to support the event on Sunday 22nd October. Get involved by heading to the Run Australia website to view other volunteer opportunities or to donate: http://runaustralia.com.au/location/ballarat/
With great anticipation, we look forward to 2018, when the new facility will open its doors.
We hope to see you there!
