Together in isolation | What it means to be part of a community in 2020

We here at Healthfix have always strived to make an impact on our local community. Thanks to a tumultuous 2020, it’s not always easy. Lockdowns and isolation mean the relationships with people we don’t know – and in many cases, even those we do – is changing. Despite the negative societal impacts of COVID-19, there are many good-news stories of charity, togetherness and empathy to be found. In fact, our newfound resourcefulness may even redefine what community means to future generations. So in spite of the year’s best efforts to keep us apart, here are some of our own good-news stories about working together.  

A helping hand: South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club

With the fitout of our shiny new Health Club completed, we ended up with an oversupply of high-quality rubber gym flooring. Rather than ending up in landfill, these useful rubber tiles found a happy home at South Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club. Just like many sports seasons, the surf lifesaving season only kicked off a couple weeks ago, and these tiles are already getting put to good use helping store essential equipment. We appreciate the great work that they do and hope they have an uneventful summer season!  

Paying it forward: 80km endurance walk for Beyond Blue

We are so thankful to Craig who was able to help us stay charitable at a time with so much business uncertainty. Craig expertly installed the flooring at our new Health Club. When he realised he had some leftover floorboards that would be perfect for our kitchen, he only asked for a donation to support his 80km Bondi to Manly endurance event, raising money for Beyond Blue. Craig completed 101,944 steps over the 80km and helped raise $25k in the end – a great support for a great organisation that is truly helping a lot of people in the time of need at the moment. We love to hear from our community and give back where we can. Drop us a line!
