Three take up Telethon chal­lenge

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
