Beach run sum­mer fun for a great cause

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

EN­TRIES for the sixth an­nual Sun­shine Beach Run in Fe­bru­ary to raise money for Red Nose are open.

The event on Sunday, Fe­bru­ary 19 at City Beach in­cludes a 1km, 3km and 5km walk and run.

Founder Chris Perkins said he hoped to ex­ceed the $150,000 raised this year.

The West Coast Ea­gles phys­io­ther­a­pist, whose son Jake was still­born and wife Cindy died in 2009, said the event was a way for fam­i­lies to re­mem­ber loved ones in a pos­i­tive way.

Re­nae Wauhop and ra­dio per­son­al­i­ties Car­men Braid­wood and Brad Fitzger­ald will join Ea­gles play­ers Mark LeCras and Matt Prid­dis as am­bas­sadors next year.

Money raised will help Red Nose con­tinue re­search and ed­u­ca­tion into mis­car­riage, still­birth and SIDS/SUDC and help fund coun­selling for fam­i­lies.

En­tries are open for the next Sun­shine Beach Run in Fe­bru­ary.
