This coming week Wynnum parkrun is going to be 6 months old, and boy have we grown over the last 6 months. Roisin and I would like to thank all the volunteers and runners who have made our parkrun such a friendly and special parkrun.
Last week we had another record attendance but next week I am sure we will have even more!
Rather than just pat ourselves on the back and celebrate our first 6 months we want to help Jetts Fitness raise much needed funds for the Red Cross QLD Flood Appeal. As you know our course was under water only a few weeks ago, but thanks to the council and a bit of hard graft we were back running the next week. But others in QLD are not as fortunate and we want to help give back to those who lost everything and need our help.
Of course we are holding our normal free 5km parkrun - but alongside this our fiends from Jetts Fitness will working hard to raise funds for the Red Cross QLD Flood Appeal.
There will be a sausage sizzle, cold drinks, and a raffle with some fabulous prizes. There will also be a goody bag for everyone who finishes the parkrun!
We are going to be asking people to stay a little longer than usual, until after the last person has finished. So we can all give them a very big cheer!
So make a note in your diaries to come to us on Saturday 2nd March, bring a friend, bring some money and stay a little longer.
All money raised will go straight to the Red Cross Flood Appeal, so please be as generous as you can and enjoy what promises to be an awesome event!
Hope to see you all there, Alan & Roisin
