Thank you to everyone who came out to Mingara track on Saturday for our combined athletics/XC fundraising day for Peter Williams. Peter's 'go fund me' page has just gone over $5000 and that is without the proceeds of Saturday. (The link to the go fund me page is on our newsfeed if you'd still like to donate). The weather was perfect, in fact a little too hot, and we sold lots of food, cakes, lollies and 100 club. Mick Daly donated his 100 club winnings back to Pe...te which was a lovely gesture. It was great to see Peter back at the track. That was his first time out of hospital since he had the stroke on 30th December and he really enjoyed himself.
We had 180 people register on the day and no doubt more will register over the next few weeks. If you haven't registered yet, please come along to Pioneer Dairy at Tuggerah this Saturday and sign up. Please come early to allow us to process the registration. Races will start at 2.30pm sharp.
Please try and sell your raffle tickets and grab more books if you think you can sell more. The prizes are fantastic with over 14 prizes on offer including 4 x $50 Bunnings vouchers, a dinner voucher at Mingara club, a breakfast voucher at Kim's Beachfront resort, and lots more. All money raised goes to Peter and Margaret Wiliams.
So how do you like our new look website? A big thanks to one of our runners, Nate Shergold, who has donated his time to re-vamp the website. (Please be patient while Nicky and Kay learn how to use it) . Photos from the meet are up on facebook. I didn't take that many as I was running too.....See you all at Pioneer Dairy this Saturday from 1pm.
