Marathon to aid Breast Cancer Network


He said Breast Cancer Network Australia and exercise apparel company LSKD had been major supporters.

“It’s going to be a bit different to our training because we treat ourselves and do a bit of running along the river, so you have something to look at,” Mr Lakin said.

“Down the highway on the bitumen, it will be about trying to keep the head noise down to a minimum.

“We’re looking forward to it. None of us have run a marathon before and it will be cool to do it together. It’s going to be tough, but fun in its own way.”

Troy Berry will be in the pilot vehicle supporting his sons and their friends on the marathon.

“I am very proud of the boys and what they are doing,” he said.

“They wanted to do something to give back to the community and that’s what they are doing with this event.”

The event will begin with the marathon, starting from Dadswells Bridge and expected to reach Coughlin Park about 11.30am.

From 11am at the oval, there will be children’s activities, AFL footballer guest appearance­s, food and drinks with a chance to mingle during the afternoon.

The marathon crew is then inviting the community to the Exchange Hotel, Horsham, for live music, raffle giveaways and more socialisin­g from 6pm.

Marathon for Mum has raised almost $30,000 to date – with AFL teams Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns donating $5000 each and a $4200 donation from the auction of Lions player Deven Robertson’s ripped guernsey.
