Call goes out to ‘Move for Mark’

Mark Scott, who worked at the University Recreation Aquatic Centre (URAC) for a number of years, was 28 years old in 2011 when he suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a road accident.

He was struck by a car while on a training bike ride with his father. A respected athlete, Mark was a triathlon coach.

His wife, Lauren, who previously worked in Informatics at UOW, told the Media Unit that Mark is now in a minimally responsive state and is making slow progress.

Their son, Oscar, is almost two and half years old. Lauren ceased work at UOW when Mark had the accident.

A fundraising event entitled ‘Move for Mark’ is going to be held on Sunday 9 December to raise funds to assist with Mark’s rehabilitation and care needs.

It is a family day with a 5km fun run/walk.
