We had a great time at our inaugural Fun Run Walk in 2015, so much so that we strapped on our trainers and did it all over again in 2016!
Like our inaugural year, the event was held at the very picturesque Princes Park. Thankfully the weather was kind to us on the day and participants enjoyed a sunny, spring morning.
Congratulations to our event winners:
6.4km Run: Hicham Hehjed (Tinning St family)
3.2km Run: Bevan Holder (Allison Jackson’s son)
3.2km Walk: Tom Hirst (sibling of Tinning St family)
Fresh coffee, a sausage sizzle, kid’s activities and goodie bags kindly supplied by Bendigo Bank kept both adults and the knee-high brigade happy, and the ever-popular Sporty Paul was on hand to put the kids through their paces.
Many thanks to Cooper (Ali Teece’s son) for stepping in to do the warm up, those who volunteered their services manning stalls, the barbie etc. on the day, and to the many families, friends of families and staff who organised and/or donated prizes for our raffle and silent auction. You helped us raise just over $4,000 – a magnificent effort!!
And finally, a huge thanks to Adrienne Smith and Lyndal Burke (Dunstan parent) for their efforts organising and running the event on the day. We could not have done it without you!
