Johnno’s Run team members had one final get-together on Wednesday, ahead of this weekend’s Run Melbourne event.
Twelve of the 15 members attended a breakfast at the Black Pudding, each being presented with their team running tops.
The group, headed by Brady Johnson, has worked hard to raise more than $22,872 for Community Living and Respite Service’s Minor St project.
Mr Johnson thanked all the organisations that supported and donated their time and resources to the cause, as well as the dedicated team members of Johnno’s Run.
‘‘It’s getting closer and closer until the big day and I would like to wish and thank all of the team members for their ongoing support for the run,’’ he said.
CLRS chief executive Suzanna Barry said community support and fundraising had been enormous and each member had worked hard within their own networks to achieve a fantastic outcome.
Ms Barry said the members came from all walks of life, with ages ranging from seven to 67, with many taking the opportunity to give back to the community by raising funds for a cause close to their heart.
She said the support would make a lasting difference to people living with disabilities and their families.
