The Father's Day Appeal
The Alfred Father’s Day Appeal proudly presented by Bulla.
Father’s Day is an opportunity to focus on men’s health and celebrate our healthy heroes. In the 17 years since its inception, The Alfred Father’s Day Appeal has raised millions of dollars which has genuinely improved the care that the hospital offers to men, their families and the entire community.
The Appeal is committed to encouraging men to take preventative care of their health. This is made even more important given the number of cultural barriers and common stigmas that appear to limit men’s likelihood to lead a healthy lifestyle. While this could include a reluctance to seek professional help for a physical or mental issue, it could also include a tendency to neglect themselves – often the result of over-prioritising certain aspects of their lives which can lead to poor decision-making. These choices may be related to physical activity, nutrition, or our stress-coping mechanisms.
The Alfred Father’s Day Appeal encourages men to take responsibility for their health, and pursue a healthy change.
The Alfred is delighted to announce that Bulla – a family-owned business run for six generations – has again thrown their support behind this year’s Father’s Day Appeal in an effort to help us care for Victorian families.
This year’s Alfred Father’s Day Appeal will support the expansion of The Alfred’s trauma service.
Please donate today to help give The Alfred’s trauma patients the best chance of returning home to their loved ones. Many patients in our care deeply hope that they will be able to spend quality time with their families for special occasions such as Father’s Day. By supporting this year’s Appeal, you can help turn that hope into a reality.
All donations will receive a copy of this year’s Healthy Men booklet.
