As you know parkruns always have been and always will be free to take part in, but sometimes as a community run event we encourage people to reach out and help others - which is what we will do at our parkrun in 2.5 weeks on 2nd March 2013.
Together with our friends from Jetts Fitness in Wynnum we will be raising money for the QLD 2013 Red Cross Flood Appeal. Alongside our normal parkrun we will have a raffle, sausage sizzle, drinks, donation tins and a special gift for every parkrunner - trust me you will not want to miss this parkrun! ALL money raised is going straight to the Red Cross Appeal so you should have a great time and help a great cause.
As you know our course was under water a few weeks ago, and was nearly under again this Saturday. So I am sure we can all appreciate the destructive power of water and we can empathise we those who have lost everything and need help them back on their feet.
So please remember to bring along some money with you to the parkrun on 2nd March so we can all contribute to a worthy cause. Thank you.
We will be announcing some more details over the coming week. But in the meantime you can find out more about the appeal from the Red Cross website
