Better Together – bring a friend to parkrun


We’ve all got our own unique habits when it comes to ‘me time’. Whether it’s a cuppa in the morning, walk in the afternoon or Netflix at night. Often, we collect these habits from the people around us.


To kick-off the launch of Medibank Live Better – helping all Australians towards a better, healthier life – Medibank took a look at the impact healthy habits and self-care have not only on ourselves, but on those closest to us.

Don’t forget to ask your family and friends to register, and bring their barcode on the day
