Stephen urges hospos to dive in.

Heart disease remains Australia’s biggest killer, claiming 48 lives in Australia every day. Healthy Hospo Hearts is an inaugural fundraising event started by Stephen Mills; Executive Chef, Ballina RSL Club.

In October this year Stephen lost one of his own teammates, Minh Griffiths, to a sudden and tragic massive heart attack in a gym. ‘It shook our team and we are without a great friend’ said Stephen. ‘We in hospitality push ourselves daily to achieve great results in a kitchen and often neglect our health. So, with the help of many of our hospo friends we will try to change things by getting together and making time to put our health first,’ Stephen added.

Stephen is putting a call out to all his hospo friends, and the wider community, to join in the challenge; with all funds raised going to the Heart Foundation.

Swim, walk, run, bike ride as much as you can with some other work friends, get together and chat and start the day off in a healthy way. It is a simple way to raise money and stay healthy. 

The challenge kicks off now and will end with a six-course degustation at Ballina RSL prepared by six of the region’s finest chefs at a Charity Dinner on the 9 February, 2022. Bookings for the degustation can be made via www.ballinarsl.com.au
