Big Red Run 2016
Residents may remember Greg Bowerman who was the hairdresser in Glenorie for many years. Well his daughter, Melinda, is doing the Big Red Run 2016 and fundraising to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. The Big Red Run is Australia's first and only 250km multi day race. It's based in the Outback, in the Simpson Desert, the run is over 6 stages and starts on 25th June. Here is Melinda's message:
This is a wonderful opportunity to raise much needed support for such a prevalent condition in our kids and young people. Please help support finding a cure so more kids can lead healthy and active lives, even if they choose not to run across the desert!
I'm also doing this to show my 2 girls they can achieve amazing things and the benefits of an active lifestyle. For my ever supportive and loving husband who never gives me a "wtf" look when I come up with things like this and my inspiration - my Dad. His love of the desert and his strength and stubbornness not to give into his own challenges. His words "anyone can do anything if they really want to" ring true in everything I do.
