‘Clarkey for Kids’ puts on silver service for a good cause

Makinex have donated a medical device to the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, as part of a Clarkey for Kids Sports Luncheon event attended by Makinex Director, Rory Kennard and International Sales Manager, Paul Weaver.

A Rad 7 Pulse Oximeter was donated to Cairns Base Hospital, a noninvasive device that measures the concentration of oxygen in blood. The tool is used in the evaluation of various medical conditions affecting the function of the heart and lungs, necessary in many neonatal units and paediatric wards.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation, founded in 1996 buys essential life-saving medical equipment and raises funding for special projects in hospitals around Australia. Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke, in partnership with the Loyal Foundation raised over $500,000 from a corporate luncheon in July for Humpty Dumpty. The event, attended by well-known TV presenter Ray Martin and fellow cricketer Mark Taylor, had proceeds going towards the immediate purchase of children’s medical equipment to 19 hospitals and health services.

“Makinex are pleased to support these charities in the provision of critical medical equipment for local hospitals,” stated Rory. “Many other organisations also showed their generosity at the Clarkey for Kids event and we are glad to be part of such a worthy cause.”

A few days following the luncheon, Michael Clarke went on to compete in a Sydney to Gold Coast yacht race with the intent of raising funds for seriously ill children. “Over the last few years, three infants very close to me have needed lifesaving medical equipment to survive. Doctors are doing an amazing job, but there is a huge shortage of reliable medical equipment.” Michael stated.
