Get set for Woodgate Fun Run

Fundraiser to help Isis District State High

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

IT’S time to dust off those jog­gers and pound the pave­ment to raise funds for the Isis District State High School.

The high school’s P&C is hold­ing its ma­jor fundraiser for the year, the Park to Point Woodgate Beach Fun Run, next Sun­day, Au­gust 17.

Par­tic­i­pants can choose to run, walk, jog or skip for dis­tances rang­ing from 2km, 5km and 10km along the Woodgate es­planade and beach.

Prizes will be awarded in each group, but, as it is not a timed event, win­ners’ names will be drawn out of a hat.

Whether you’re a fit­ness fa­natic or happy to just walk at your leisure along the beau­ti­ful beach, ev­ery com­peti­tor will be in the run­ning for a prize.

Lo­cal fit­ness guru Leanne Shorter will be on hand to lead the warm up again this year, and when you’ve worked up an ap­petite, break­fast can be pur­chased from the P&C, in­clud­ing scrump­tious ba­con and egg burg­ers, sausages on bread and fruit salad and yo­ghurt.

This is the sec­ond year the P&C has held the fam­ily-friendly fundraiser, and or­gan­is­ers are on a mis­sion to raise just as much, if not more, funds than last year’s event.

“Last year we raised just over $2500 with the Fun Run and were re­ally grate­ful for the com­mu­nity's par­tic­i­pa­tion,” P&C sec­re­tary Kymm Cole said.

She said the P&C was able to put the funds to­wards in­stalling air-con­di­tion­ing in the school li­brary and some class­rooms.

“This has been greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the stu­dents and staff, es­pe­cially dur­ing those re­ally hot days early in the year,” she said.

This year the P&C is hop­ing to use the funds to in­stall large fans in the school’s sta­dium as well as air-con­di­tion­ing in more class­rooms.

There are some ma­jor prizes up for grabs this year, in­clud­ing one night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion for four in a beach front villa, thanks to the Woodgate Beach Tourist Park.

Regis­tra­tion is avail­able on the day, or jump on­line at try­book­ing .com/91318.
