Three take up Telethon challenge
JOSH Catalano will join West Leederville resident Matt Fuller and Soa ‘The Hulk’ Palelei in this year’s 24-hour Fitness Challenge raising money for Telethon.
Fuller, who is completing the challenge for the seventh year, said it was great to introduce a third person.
“My vision for the 24-hour Peard Fitness Challenge has always been to see it grow in terms of the amount of money we can raise for Telethon and in terms of participants,” he said.
“It finally happened last year with the inclusion of Soa.
“To have him back again this year and to introduce a third person is a great feeling.”
Catalano, a chef and third generation fishmonger from Catalano Seafoods, will be on a bike while Fuller and Palelei will complete the challenge on grinders.
The father-of-two said he would complete as many of the 24 hours as he could, dedicating the ride to his second son Lenny who was born premature at 24 weeks.
“Nothing can quite prepare you for the emotion of the experience that we’ve been going through,” Catalano said.
The challenge is at the Convention Centre this weekend.
