Hello and welcome.
I just wanted to introduce myself and my WHY before I ask anyone to donate. My name is Courtney Hopkins. I am a Registered Nurse at the Queensland Children's Hospital in Brisbane. Previously I worked at the Mater Mothers' in Neonatal Intensive Care unit looking after premature babies and babies that required extra support during the transition into the world.
Unfortunately during my time as a nurse, I have experienced some heart-aching things. Although, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows one of the most rewarding aspects of my career is the ability to connect with my patients and families. Whilst we often meet under very difficult circumstances – witnessing the birth or end of a life, I have the opportunity to play an important role in their lives. Fortunately for me, I get to say the best part of my job is being with those families, listening to their stories, and being a part of their journey.
I get to build a relationship with these families and hope to bring a smile to their faces on some of the hardest days or be a shoulder to cry on. As rewarding as my job may be, I still endeavor to make more of an impact on our families and this is my WHY I am doing the 42k Your Way fundraiser.
Over the month of August, I will be walking and running to reach 42km to help raise money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. All money that is donated will go towards World-class research, state-of-the-art medical equipment, patient and family services, and areas of greatest needs.Share
