    Central Park Plunge – On the 8th August 2015 Principal Podiatrist at Malibu Podiatry, Mark Ould, took part in the Central Park Plunge to raise money for the Fiona Wood Foundation.  Below is the story behind his fund raising effort.

    Sometimes in life events occur to others that may make you wonder “What can I do?”.

    In early February 2015 such an event occurred to a member of our local community. David Richards, a husband and father of a family that attends Malibu Podiatry was seriously injured in an explosion at the Morley Galleria shopping centre. David’s life was saved by the actions of many on that day, but without the care and dedication of Dr Fiona Wood and her team David may not have survived.

    With this in mind Mark registered to participate in the Central Park Plunge, the highest urban abseiling event down the side of a building ever undertaken in Australia – 220m, 52 floors for charity, money raised going to the Fiona Wood Foundation, funds that would help other burn victims and their families.  Thanks to donations from patients, friends and family Mark raised over $2,000 for the Fiona Wood Foundation, adding to an impressive final total that exceeded $100,000, money that will go to research to improving the care and outcome of all burn victims.

    The more people that know about the Fiona Wood Foundation, the greater their impact
