Aveley 3rd Anniversary!

We will be hosting our 3rd Anniversary celebrations on Saturday 9th July

The theme will be Doctors and Nurses (and anything health related) given that we have just received our own AED

So get your thinking caps on (or your nurse's cap) and come and help us celebrate!

Please bring a plate to share and there will be cake!

 

Aveley parkrun now have an AED

Aveley parkrun now have our very own defibrillator!

Thank you to the Carbon Business Group in Ellenbrook and to the Stockalnd/Aveley Community Grant scheme for their generous donations that made this possible.

A big thank you to those of you who completed the CPR/first aid training with australiawidefirstaid. - The course was very informative and we all gained the skills and confidence to carry out life saving procedures.

The AED will be stored alongside the parkrun kit every Saturday at the gazebo - in case you are ever asked to retrieve it in the event of an emergency.

 

CPR/defibrillator training

Did you know that approximately 33,000 people suffer cardiac arrest each year and that 80-90% of cardiac arrest victims will survive if a defibrillator is used in the first 5 minutes? Given that Aveley does not have an ambulance station and if someone at our parkrun was to unfortunately suffer a cardiac arrest, a defibrillator could potentially safe their life.

A company called Australia Wide First Aid has introduced a heartstarter initiative 'learn the skills and get the tools' and is offering 30 people the chance to complete a nationally accredited CPR/first aid course (HLTAID003 Provide First Aid and HLTAID001 Provide CPR) and on completion our parkrun will receive a free defibrillator.

We have now secured  funding through the Aveley community grant and together with the generous $1000 donation we received from the Carbon Business Group, we can go ahead with the CPR/first aid training and get the defibrillator that we need for our parkrun.

The courses will be split over 2 days - Saturday 21st May (CPR) and Saturday 28th May (first aid). Both times are 12-4pm at the Aveley community centre (22 Bolero Road)

The cost of the courses are $30 for both - this is very reasonable and heavily subsidized with the grant and the donation, as the courses would cost in excess of $100 without the subsidies. You don't have to do both courses if you don't want to, but the price will remain at $30 whether you do one or both.

If you are interested, please send an email to aveleyoffice@parkrun.com as soon as possible so that we can take advantage of this awesome offer and get a potentially life saving device for our parkrun and also have people with the skills to use it.

We need 30 people in order for the courses to go ahead, otherwise we will not have enough money to secure the required amount to pay for the courses and receive the free defibrillator. If you don't want to do either course but would like to donate your $30, that would be appreciated.

Once we have 30 interested people, we will email you the bank details to pay your $30 and also give instructions on how to register for the course. Then all you have to do is turn up on the required days and learn some valuable first aid/CPR skills!

If you have family or friendsthat may be interested then please pass this on to them. 
So come on guys, get behind Aveley parkrun and give your support to our fantastic cause!

Celebrate Children’s week at Aveley parkrun

Saturday 24th October is the start of Children's week - an annual event run throughout Australia which celebrates the right of children to enjoy their childhood and encourages them to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

 

With this in mind, Aveley parkrun would like to encourage all the children that regularly attend our parkrun to run the show! We will open up the volunteer roster to children only that day and would like as many children as possible taking part - we would like at least 2 children per role so that as many children as possible participate and get to have a go at volunteering.

 

Parents/guardians are encouraged to stay with their children if they wish and the event director will be on hand to assist where needed.

 

We will need
Run director
Timekeeper
Tokens
Barcode scanner x2
Tail runner
Photographer

 

All of the roles as are easy to do (some of your parents manage ok!) there's no pressure, you will be shown what to do, so put your name forward and come and have a go.

 

So come on Aveley parkrun kids - step up and volunteer and show the adults how easy it is! You can let us know on our Facebook page, at the run on the next 2 Saturdays or by email to aveleyoffice@parkrun.com
