Healthy Canberra: What’s On In July 2016

Canberra is buzzing with activities in July. As always, we’re rounding up the health-related ones we thought you might be interested in.

Here’s what’s happening in the coming month of July:


1 July: Bravehearts 777 Marathon; Commonwealth Place, Canberra

The Bravehearts 777 features 7 marathons in 7 states in 7 days. Marathon No. 5 happens in Commonwealth Place in Canberra on July 1st. You need not be a participant (though you can start training to join next year!) to join the cause. You can take part in this fundraising activity by being a supporter of child protection and share Bravehearts vision to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.

4-10 July: Sleep Awareness Week

Sleep Awareness Week is an annual community education and awareness campaign to raise awareness of the common sleep disorder, obstructive sleep apnoea or OSA and promotes the importance of sleep as a fundamental pillar of good health.
