Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Five peo­ple liv­ing with dis­abil­ity will take on the ul­ti­mate chal­lenge this year by com­plet­ing the 2016 Chevron City to Surf for Ac­tiv se­ries.

The Ac­tiv All Stars will seek to join the 68 com­peti­tors to date who have com­pleted all five races — in Kar­ratha, Ger­ald­ton, Albany, Bus­sel­ton and Perth — over the years.

Ger­ald­ton-based team mem­ber Janelle Hitchock said she was look­ing for­ward to rac­ing in all the events, hav­ing com­peted in the Ger­ald­ton leg.

“I’m es­pe­cially look­ing for­ward to see­ing dif­fer­ent places and do­ing the race in dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions,” she said.

Ac­tiv chief ex­ec­u­tive Danielle New­port, a three-time City to Surf se­ries fin­isher, will join the Ac­tiv All Stars on their jour­ney.

“Do­ing the City to Surf se­ries is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment and I’m so proud of the Ac­tiv am­bas­sadors,” she said.

“I can’t wait to join them on their jour­ney and watch as they reach their goals and achieve per­sonal mile­stones.”

To sup­port the Ac­tiv All Stars, reg­is­ter via the City to Surf web­site at www. chevron city­to­ and join them on their jour­ney.
