Congratulations to the Bankstown Sports team who completed the City2Surf on August 14! We had 34 staff, family and friends take part in the 14km fun-run from Hyde Park in the city to Bondi Beach, to raise money for the Little Wings charity. Thanks to everyone’s generous donations, we managed to raise over $10,000!
Most of the team started the event around 10am from the Orange section at the back of the pack, choosing to walk at their own pace and enjoy the sunshine and entertainment along the way. The Veronica’s were DJ’ing live from the starting line and there were close to a dozen bands positioned along the track, blaring out different tunes to keep everyone motivated! Despite breaking up into smaller groups along the way, most of us crossed the finish line after about two and a half hours, and were all awarded finishing medals.
We had two standout performers, with CEO Mark Condi and Team Leader Nicole Wise choosing to register in one of the earlier starting packs so they could run the track. Mark completed the course in 1 hour and 22 minutes, and Nicole crossed the finish line in 1 hour and 17 minutes.
A great day was had by all and we look forward to being a part of the event again next year!
