The third MCCCC Fun Run/Walk 2017 took place at our usual venue, Princes Park, on Saturday 22nd October.
Grey skies gave way to a little sunshine and our staff, families and supporters rugged up and enjoyed a brisk walk or run around the park. There were children in prams, children on scooters, children on foot – and lots of colourful silly socks!
Congratulations to our winners:
6.4km run: Stuart Lovejoy (Tinning St relative)
3.2km run: Phil Bennett (Tinning St)
3.2 km walk: Mira and Sophie Keleher (Dunstan Reserve)
All winners received a prize, bouquet of homegrown bay leaves (thank you Jen Lovejoy!) and trophy.
The silent auction and raffle were popular and well-patronised – thank you to all those who bid and bought tickets, and of course, to those who donated prizes.
There are many people to thank: our MC Chris Fitzgerald, who kept the proceedings moving along nicely, Sporty Paul and Dancing Sue, for warming us up and
keeping us entertained, Alick Weber for his enormous help with the silent auction pre-bid sheets and silent auction on the day, Adrienne Smith and
the Community Engagement Sub-Committee, for all their planning, organising, meetings, picking up, dropping off, setting up, packing up etc. Angelica
(Tinning St) and her ‘cooks and servers’ also did a wonderful job with the breakfast offerings this year!
Thank you to each and every person – MCCCC staff, families, supporters, small businesses etc. – who supported this year’s fun run. We are so very appreciative.
And we hope to see you all again in 2018!
