Teams step out in memory of Stessy
■ A foot race with mobile dunnies in Tom Price raised $4000 in the memory of Manjimup four-yearold Stephanie Tempra on September 12.
It’s the third year a Steps for Stessy event has been run in the Pilbara, with money raised going to Princess Margaret Hospital on behalf of “Stessy”, who died from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in November 2011.
Tom Price resident Narelle McLeod organised this year’s family fun day, which attracted about 100 people.
She said everyone came down early for some spuds and food before they kicked off the race.
“At the first stop, they had to get the toilet brush and then a toilet roll, newspaper and a run with the undies on the ankles to the end,” she said.
“It was a pretty straight-forward race, bit of falling over, and egging and that sort of stuff — no injuries, which is great.”
There were several entrants to the race with one team taking a leaf out of the book of Dastardly and Muttley by throwing eggs and water bombs at their unsuspecting opponents.
The winner of the race was the Boom-Cart, who got to raise the “golden poo” trophy in triumph.
The “poo” was auctioned off to the highest bidder to raise more funds for charity with Tracy Wilson from Roadies putting in the winning bid of $120.
Mrs McLeod said once again there had been amazing support from the community.
She said the cadets helped pack up and pick up rubbish.
Loo race winners Brad McLeod, Sarah McLeod (10), Moscow McLeod, Marley McLeod, (7), and Simon Clark.
The Chariots of Great Effluence thunder across the oval.
Tracy Wilson, of Roadies, was the top bidder for the golden poo trophy.
