Final and well-deserved congratulations to all our Run4Research team members for their extreme efforts leading up to and on the day. Many exercise regimes were tested and proved to be effective for the 14km fun run. Everyone looked great in their new Centenary race shirts, kindly donated by Nike Sydney and enjoyed the idyllic picnic spot at the end of the race that LB, Suzie and Nick set up in the early hours of the morning.
As for the race, the lightning time of 59.21 was reached by Aaron McGrath who led the way for the Centenary team followed by Darshan Parmar (62.07), Matt O’Donnell (65.48) and Ben Roediger (72.35).
Centenary Scientist Dr Jeff Holst (74.23) was next in the race and also takes the prize for our highest fundraiser! Dr Holst overtook his $2,000 target and raised almost $3,000! Victoria Payne also achieved more than her target with $1,240.
Particular thanks to all those who supported the team in their fundraising efforts. Together we raised over $15,000! This will help our research into the diseases that affect so many of us including, cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
Well done everyone!
