Fun run hopes to break race record

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

HUD­SON Ab­sa­lom-Hornby and Austin and Jor­dana Matthews will help Park­erville Chil­dren and Youth Care cre­ate the big­gest Kids Fun Run next month.

The young­sters will take part in the eighth an­nual Spring For­ward Kids Fun Run at the WA Ath­let­ics Sta­dium in Mt Clare­mont, with or­gan­is­ers hop­ing to break last year’s record of 600 par­tic­i­pants.

There are eight race cat­e­gories from un­der 5s to un­der 18s, with dis­tances rang­ing from 100m to 5km.

The school with the most par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive the Spring For­ward Per­pet­ual Tro­phy, which was in­tro­duced in 2009.

Money raised from the Septem­ber 20 fun run will help the 112-year-old non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion pro­vide care and treat­ment for chil­dren and young peo­ple.

Park­erville’s mis­sion is to pro­tect, care, ad­vo­cate and pro­mote re­cov­ery for chil­dren and young peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced trauma from abuse, to sup­port fam­i­lies and work with the com­mu­nity to pre­vent child abuse.

Park­erville has fa­cil­i­ties in Park­erville, Ar­madale, Mirra­booka, Mid­land and Fre­man­tle.
