New defibrillator for Lakeview parkrun

Eire Constructions recently joined the Lakeview parkrun, at Green Point Reserve Belmont, and chipped in a considerable donation to support their fundraising efforts and purchase a much-needed defibrillator.

Cardiac Arrest can happen to anyone at anytime. The good news is people have the best chance of survival with the immediate use of a defibrillator.

“After a near fatal incident at a parkrun in Queensland, parkrun Australia asked all running groups to try to raise funds for a defibrillator,” said Run Director, Peter Scotchmer.

The national body organised a bulk price and provided a dedicated website to help runners fundraise online.

“We raised funds over a number of months. The donation from Eire Constructions lifted the spirits of the organising group as we are a relatively small community of participants,” said Peter.

“We’re so grateful to Eire Constructions for their generous support. With 150 runners a week, it’s reassuring to have a defibrillator, as we have runners aged from 5 to 80+ taking part with a very wide range of fitness and general health,” added Peter.

Lakeview parkrun started in 2013 and has seen 2,769 participants complete 13,627 parkruns covering a total distance of 68,135 km.

The defib is small enough to be taken out onto the course of the run and organisers are now equipped to help participants with a heart problem.

parkrun is a free timed 5k event held every Saturday, it is open to all. It started in the UK and has since spread around the world. It has very strong support in Australia and particularly in the Newcastle and Hunter region where Eire Constructions manages a number of projects.
