Local Jess Milne has stepped up to organise the Tin Can Bay 2016 Fun Run event on May 8, so pull on your pink gear and stride (or run) out!
“The aim of the Mother’s Day Classic fun run/walk is to deliver an inspirational community event that celebrates those touched by breast cancer,” Jess said. ”It also raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
“Registrations are now open, and people are encouraged to register online, but please contact me if you need help, as it closes online on May 4.”
It is 6km circuit around town, starting at Norman Point Tin Can Bay, which opens at 8am with the warm up at 8.45am. There will be a sausage sizzle, with games and entertainment afterwards.
The event will have a Tribute wall, medallions for registered participants, awards for first male/female runners, Best Dressed Family, Male and Female.
“Oh and we need bras!” Jess smiled. “Drop off points are Tin Can Bay – Cooloola Craft and Fashion, Cooloola Cove – Gone Bonkers or Top to Toe, Rainbow Beach – Handcrafted. After the day the bras will be donated to charity.”
Children under three are free, with adults paying $20, and children/concessions $10, plus family registration prices available. More information can be found at: mothersdayclassic.com.au, or contact Jess Milne on 0411 218 254 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry, no dogs, but donations gratefully accepted and cheering on from the sidelines also appreciated!
