Inspiring Local Running Coach Bel Fong

Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)

—I recognise Kirribilli running coach Bel Fong for her contributions to the local community by sharing her love of running with others. Bel has a created an incredible running program with marathon runner, Turia Pitt called the Run with Turia Program and has previously competed in Ironwoman events. Childbirth can have long-lasting effects on a woman's body, which is one thing that makes the Run with Turia program special. It is a program specifically designed for mums that also provides specialist physiotherapists, nutritionists, and community support. The program is targeted towards mums that are 12 months post-partum and includes Q&As with pelvic floor physios, and allows access to a community of women who are experiencing a similar situation. It is an incredible community of warm, supportive, and encouraging women who have each other's backs. I congratulate Bel for her commitment and passion for running and for providing support to local women to get back exercising in an encouraging and supportive environment.
