Run­ning for funds

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE com­mu­nity has come to­gether to run for fun and funds for a Childers fam­ily.

The Stein­brecher fam­ily has lived in Childers for nearly 18 months af­ter mov­ing to the ru­ral re­gion from the US.

The fam­ily has be­come an ac­tive part of the Childers com­mu­nity and runs the Childers Wes­leyan Methodist Church.

But as their four chil­dren grow up, get mar­ried, have chil­dren and pre­pare to head off to univer­sity, the need has arisen for the Stein­brecher fam­ily to head back to Amer­ica.

The re­turn trip won’t come cheaply and mum Chris Stein­brecher said the church had de­cided to pitch in and help the fam­ily raise funds for the trip.

“They said they wanted us to get back to see our fam­ily,” Mrs Stein­brecher said.

She said the help was the church’s way of say­ing “you can go, but you have to come back”, she joked.

The Queen’s Birth­day hol­i­day event raised more than $250 to­wards the trip and Mrs Stein­brecher said it was a great day.

“Some people re­ally ac­com­plished a lot,” she said.
