Sprint­ing to give

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

I RE­CENTLY vis­ited most busi­nesses in Port Dou­glas and Moss­man ask­ing for a do­na­tion or sponsorship for the Co­ral Coast triathlon.

The money I raised was to go to The Dou­glas Shire Com­mu­nity Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion Inc. - Life­style and Respite Sup­port Ser­vices, sit­u­ated in Mill St, Moss­man.

The ser­vice works with fam­i­lies to sup­port peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity to be an in­te­gral and ac­tive part of this com­mu­nity.

The re­sponse was amaz­ing. Nearly ev­ery busi­ness I en­tered gave a do­na­tion, even in this dif­fi­cult eco­nomic time. I man­aged to raise just un­der $1000. I com­pleted the Olympic dis­tance in 2 hours and 37 min­utes, well be­low myand came sec­ond in my cat­e­gory.

A spe­cial thanks to my big­gest spon­sors Nigel at Mocha’s Pies, Andy at Bel Cibo and Rain­trees Café. Com­mu­nity sup­port at its best - thank you.
