Moran Sylvania residents and their carers decided to take on a walking challenge, covering the distance from Kathmandu to the Summit of Mount Everest. Our awesome residents, General Manager, Lorraine and Physio Dhan tell the story to ABC News Breakfast on 3 August 2020.
The challenge was very simple – to improve residents’ wellbeing by inviting them to participate in a walking challenge.
99-year-old Dorothy Brandley who didn’t miss a single warm-up, walk or warm down, said
“I don’t want to miss out on anything. You’ve got to just keep your body moving every day!”
On the 28th July, Moran Sylvania residents and their support crews reached the ‘summit’ of Mount Everest with much jubilation and fanfare.
