On 30th July, the City of Melbourne filled with thousands of joggers, all ready to participate and celebrate the 10th anniversary of Run Melbourne. It was certainly the perfect day for it with blue skies and the sun shining to ease the chill in the air.
Every individual ran for various reasons and for different causes, but they all ran for a purpose. Their purpose centered around an organisation of their choice for which they ran to raise money and also to raise awareness. For the Challenge organisation, we were very fortunate to have some extremely passionate and avid joggers out there, running to show their support to children and families living with cancer.
Tying up their yellow laces, Team Challenge ran with ferocity and perseverance, making every stride count towards making a difference. Our team was triumphant in its mission as we smashed our $10k fundraising goal.
Congratulations to Team Challenge and to everyone who donated. Please know that your monies will go directly to our camping program offered to our Challenge members.
