The Fun Run held on Saturday for Finley’s Hannan family was a great success, bringing the community together to support the family.December 19, 2012 4:18am
The event was organised by the Finley Football Netball Club after Julie Hannan was required to have surgery earlier this month.
Being so close to Christmas, and requiring much more care on her road to recovery, the club wanted to do what they could for Mrs Hannan and her family.
On the actual morning, about $10,794.50 was collected.
Organisers say, however, with some donations still rolling in, they are confident they will hit the $11,000 mark.
They say the result is an indication of the compassion and esteem held for the Hannan family.
Organisers say it was a wonderful morning, and the rain just held off long enough.
Lots of people turned up at 6am with a constant stream of runners and walkers, and there were families with kids, prams and bikes until 8am.
‘‘It was a very touching and uplifting sight to see people of all ages and fitness walk or run all the way around the lake, walking for a common cause and feeling part of something important and worthwhile,’’ organisers said.
Many enjoyed the breakfast of a bacon and egg sandwich or sausage sandwich.
Organisers thanked Ash Haynes Butchery, Finley Football Netball Club, Finley Farmers Market Committee, Roger Sutton, Finley Bakery, IGA Finley, Cherilyn Taig, Kate Hawkins, Kate Steele, Grants Eggs Cobram, Lisa Bryce, Di Sexton, SRN, schools and the community for their support.
