City’s festive fun run

The Chronicle - - NEWS - Amy Lyne amy.lyne@thechron­i­cle.com.au

SUIT-UP in your Santa gear and lace up your run­ning shoes for the most festive fun run of the year.

The Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion is call­ing on the com­mu­nity to get in­volved in its first Christ­mas Cen­tre Run, held in part­ner­ship with the Ro­tary Club of Toowoomba South.

While sim­i­lar to a Santa fun run last year, this will be the in­au­gu­ral year of the run, a 5km event from The Glen­nie School to Clifford Gar­dens Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion events and spon­sor­ship of­fi­cer Jas­mine Quar­man said as part of regis­tra­tion, par­tic­i­pants would re­ceive a Christ­mas hat and t-shirt.

“So it will be a sea of red on the day, it’s go­ing to look pretty awe­some,” she said.

“It’s a run or a walk so it is for all dif­fer­ent ages and fit­ness abil­i­ties and it’s just to get the com­mu­nity in­volved and to help the Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion in the lead-up to Christ­mas.”

Sup­ported by Ston­estreets Coaches, Boost Juice Clifford Gar­dens and Any­time Fit­ness, it will raise money for the Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal Chil­dren’s Ap­peal.

Ston­estreets di­rec­tor Phillip Ston­estreet said he was look­ing for­ward to the day and be­ing able to give back to the com­mu­nity.

“The festive part of it is al­ways good but also there is so many peo­ple who get so much out of the hos­pi­tal foun­da­tion,” he said.

It will be held on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 3. Tick­ets cost $20 for adults, $10 for chil­dren and $50 for a fam­ily of two adults and two chil­dren. To reg­is­ter and get fund rais­ing go to bit.ly/cen­tre-run.
