Wow! What a special day we have all just experienced!!
From all members of the Keeping Kids On Track Funrun Committee for 2015, we hope that all participants and others cheering on their families and friends today enjoyed the KKOT 2015 Funrun Festival.
To everyone who has made it possible, we have attempted to thank you personally, so I will keep this brief, but to our SPONSORS, VOLUNTEERS, MC, 3mfm providing music, all the sports clubs representing themselves at the festival, the food stalls and entertainment, BAND, Fiona’s warm-up, our awesome ambassador MAGNUS, PIGGY from Bendigo Bank, and most of all to the ATHLETES who made today the success that it was! The atmosphere was fantastic, and apart from the head-wind coming towards the finish-line, the weather was pretty spot-on also!
All funds from this event are donated to local sporting organisations that advocate sport, education and healthy lifestyle choices. Organisations that have benefited from the past 3 events include: Wonthaggi Little Athletics, Bass Coast Board Riders, Wonthaggi Underwater Hockey Club, Inverloch Wind Surging Club, Wonthaggi Basketball Association, local Nippers Surf Lifesaving programs (Wonthaggi, Cape Paterson and Inverloch), Bass Coast Specialist School, Wonthaggi Library Loan Scheme, Wonthaggi SES. So thankyou for supporting us again this year, so that we can continue to support sporting organisations in our local community! We have also annually donated to the Kongor School Support Group, a locally founded charity raising funds to build a primary school in South Sudan.
So from all of us, without you guys ‘following this event’, supporting us all, and being there on the day, it would not be what it was, so THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU. Follow us on facebook: ‘Keeping KIDS on TRACK’ to stay up to date for next year.
And don’t stop now, whatever training you have done to get to that finish line today, keep it up – making healthy lifestyle choices is what we are promoting to our youth, but it is important at any age!
So don’t stop RUNNING!
Till next year xxx
