Fun run supports children’s hospice
NORTHSIDE runners will be raising money for Queensland’s only children’s hospice while dashing around the largest roundabout in Sandgate in October.
The 4th annual Sandgate Sunset Run will feature four runs, catering for all ages, when it is held on October 14 from 4-8pm, and all funds raised will go to Hummingbird House in Chermside.
There will be a two-hour Open Relay, a 40-minute Social Relay, a Junior Relay for ages 10-15 as well as a Kids’ Dash for those aged 9 and under.
All events are run around the roundabout near Sandgate Town Hall; the area is shut off to cars for the evening with world food markets, free entertainment,and a kids’ zone.
Event Director Dean Gibson said Hummingbird House – which provides short break stays, family well-being services, creative therapies and care at the end of life for children with life-limiting conditions and their families – was a perfect fit for the Sunset Run, which falls on World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.
“There are many deserving charities out there but when we thought of Hummingbird House our whole team agreed we would love to support this incredible charity,” Mr Gibson said.
“We were really moved by the amazing work they are doing for families and their kids with life-limiting conditions. We know our runners and spectators will really get behind this cause.”
