City 2 Surf – Team Synrad!

The City 2 Surf on again this Sunday (August 12, 2018) and we have a group of Synergy radiology employees entering the gruelling 14km course to raise money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service!

But we are not the only ones who have emerged from their winter hibernation who will take part in this popular fun run this weekend. A whopping 85,000 people are predicted to attend!

Ultrasonography uses sound waves to study soft tissue structures of the body. Because it is radiation-free it is the preferred imaging modality by many.

But we are not the only ones who have emerged from their winter

hibernation who will take part in this popular fun run this weekend.

Running has many health benefits and because of this is one of the most popular fitness activities worldwide.
