CHARITY RUN BRIGHTENS DAD’S DAY
HARRY Allen and his dad spent Father’s Day dashing, jumping and rolling through bursts of colour with other schoolkids and their families.
Five-year-old Harry had a blast at Dominic College on Sunday at the Make-A-Wish Father’s Day Colour Splash.
“I got covered in orange and pink and blue,” he said.
“I did a roley-poley and forward-rolls, it was a bit fun.”
The highlight for Harry was getting to enjoy the fun run event with his dad, Anthony Allen.
“It was good, because I was tired, dad carried me,” Harry said.
Harry was nervous to run through the sprinklers but he embraced the challenge.
Mr Allen said Harry surprised him with a Father’s Day card and a basketball hoop and ball as a gift.
He said the weather turned it on for the fundraiser.
“I’m really happy because it was a good way to spend Father’s Day,” Mr Allen said.
“I think it’s a really nice way to raise awareness for Make-A-Wish, it’s a really important fundraiser and more people need to get involved.”
There are some 21 wishes yet to be fulfilled for local, critically ill children which the more than $4000 raised at Dominic College will go towards.
