Sids and Kids Sunshine Beach Run - Sunday 16th March - Register now!

With exactly two months to go until the run on Sunday, March 16 at City Beach, now is the time to sign up at www.sunshinebeachrun.com.au and start your fundraising page for this fantastic cause.

The Sunshine Beach Run was founded by West Coast Eagles / Body Logic physiotherapist Chris Perkins in 2012, after the tragic loss of his stillborn baby son Jake, and his wife Cindy just a week later.

The run is dedicated to anyone who has been affected by the loss of a child, and raises much-needed funds for SIDS and Kids WA. By supporting the third annual Sunshine Beach Run, you can directly help WA families grappling with the unexpected loss of a baby or child. All funds raised will support SIDS and Kids new Healthy Pregnancy, Healthy Baby campaign, which is set to be launched in 2014 throughout Western Australia.

The Healthy Pregnancy, Healthy Baby campaign focuses on the overwhelming (but little publicised) statistics that one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage or stillbirth. In 2010 alone, 218 babies were stillborn in WA – a startlingly similar figure to the number of WA women who die due to breast cancer every year. In particular, the stillbirth rate among Indigenous Australians is double that of non-Indigenous Australians. Through the Healthy Pregnancy, Healthy Baby campaign, SKWA wants to bring stillbirth prevention to the forefront of the national health agenda in 2014.

Through the program, SIDS and Kids WA will:

  • Raise awareness of the risk factors
  • Research ways in which to reduce the risks further
  • Provide information to women about early detection
  • Address health inequalities facing Indigenous Australians
  • Provide culturally-appropriate and tailored information to “high risk” populations, and
  • Implement bereavement care linking the hospital to the community

Covering topics as diverse as nutrition and physical activity, antenatal care, foetal wellbeing, parenting workshops, grandparent information, safe sleeping recommendations and CPR, as well as providing bereavement support, the Healthy Pregnancy, Healthy Baby campaign is how we can help save babies’ lives.

Time to cut the excuses about exercise - Chris Perkin in The West - 22.01.14

If there’s one thing humans seem to excel in, it is making excuses. Body Logic physiotherapist Chris Perkin, who works with people from all walks of life, including elite athletes, says everyone at some point in their life will come up with a good reason why they can’t exercise. Read More >>

Pelvic Floor Safe Exercises app launch

The Continence Foundation of Australia has developed a free, safe-exercise app to both help prevent incontinence and enable people experiencing problems to continue to exercise without further straining their pelvic floor or suffer embarrassing accidents. 

The Pelvic Floor First app has three customised workouts for people of all fitness levels and pelvic floor strength. The wide range of exercises have been designed by physiotherapist and fitness leader Lisa Westlake to ensure people enjoy the benefits of a total-body workout that protects their pelvic floor muscles.

Dr Richard Yin & Yoga Moves Walk the South West for CINI Australia

On Thursday 24th October - Sunday 27th October Dr Richard Yin and a group from the meditation classes at Yoga Moves will be walking from Glen Mervyn Dam, south of Collie, to Origins Centre in Balingup. The walk has many purposes, not least of which is to fundraise for Child In Need India (CINI) Australia. Since 2009, the group at Yoga Moves have been regularly supporting CINI and their work in educating children and young mothers that they may break free from the cycle of poverty, malnutrition and ill health that many are caught in. With a focus on grassroots development and local sustainability, CINI’s work is inspiring. If you wish to support CINI by sponsoring the Yogo Moves group in the walk, you can do so online at
www.givenow.com.au/walkthesouthwestcini
Donations unfortunately are not currently tax deductible.
