Defib Demo at CRp 15th Jun 2019

Defib Demo

If you've ever wondered how our mobile defibrillator operates or thought it would be good to familiarise yourself in advance, here's your chance. Robert Meacham has kindly offered to run a series of instructional demonstrations to dispel the myths and fears surrounding AED's. They will begin near the finish line of our June 15th parkrun event for anyone willing to observe and will be repeated as necessary to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be involved.
While Canning River parkrun is lucky enough to have a mobile defib, others do not. Please consider visiting this link and donating to support new or less fortunate parkrun locations.

Aug 2013 Vollies

G'day parkies, just a quick reminder that Canning River parkrun's 6th birthday is this Saturday 1st June and we are having an "Australiana" themed event, chucking a few pacers on the course and hopefully celebrating some big milestones. While we have all the volunteers we need to go ahead, there is still plenty of pacer vests available. Please message us to reserve a vest or grab whatever is remaining on the day.
See you's all there for what we're sure will be a big event and great beginning to your weegend


A Tribute to Graham.

Dear Canning River parkrunners,
It is with great sadness that we make this announcement.
Graham Upton’s family has contacted us with the sad news that Graham has passed away, suddenly on Christmas Day.
Along with his wife Wendy, Graham has been a regular part of our parkrun family for more than three years. Anyone who has met him would say that Graham always had a smile for friends and strangers alike and was a humble, selfless person; someone who never made a fuss. In April of this year, we were pleased to welcome Graham as a Run Director and he became an integral member of the Canning River Event Team. He loved serving the community and always put others first. We will miss Graham dearly.
Our thoughts are with Wendy and the family at this difficult time.
Graham was very passionate about his favourite soccer club, Chelsea, who play in royal blue and often joked about how his wearing the red 50 milestone parkrun shirt was the only time he would wear the colours of arch rival Manchester United.
Therefore, as a tribute to Graham, we would like to encourage everyone attending our parkrun on Saturday 5th January 2019 to either wear a shirt or something coloured Blue or, alternatively, wear the jersey for their favourite sports team.

Graham will be sorely missed, but not forgotten.

Canning River parkrun #280 22/9/2018

What a great day for a run or walk. This week 245 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 16 were first timers and 26 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 15 different clubs took part.

Some awesome milestones were achieved today with Wendy UPTON claiming a shy 100th and Brendan MCAULIFFE stating in bold and delicious cake 150! Congratulations to you both.

Peg's Lamination Services was well received with 51 taking up on his generous offer. Anyone who left a paper barcode last week and hasn't picked it up should see either Andrew Pengelly or the Run Director in the next few weeks.

The event was made possible by the flawless performance of 20 volunteers.
