IN AN EFFORT to increase their fitness Seachange staff members Kathleen, Cate and Rachel are currently training to participate in the Seachange sponsored 10km Run for Cancer.
Looking for a healthy activity to be involved in the girls set their sights on the 10km run more than a month ago and have been regularly training, despite the cooler temperatures.
Not just in it for their own benefit, the girls are also using the run to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.
“It was always our intention to raise money,” says Kathleen. “Our target was $1,000 which we have already reached, and there is still two weeks to the event.”
The Leukaemia Foundation is a cause close to the hearts of many, but one participant in particular Rachel has had direct contact throughout the successful treatment of her son.
“I’m sure there are Seachange residents who have been affected by Leukaemia,” says Rachel. “The Foundation do so many wonderful things and we girls think it’s important to raise awareness of this.”
Keep an eye out for the girls on the day in their bright pink singlets and give them an encouraging wave and clap.
Following the great response they have had the girls have increased their target to $2,500. To make a donation visit the Everyday Hero website or call in to the Seachange Village Arundel Welcome Centre, open 7 days 9am to 5pm.
