THE staff at Coles Medowie have banded together once again to help others, by competing in last weekend’s ‘City2surf’ in Sydney.
Fourteen staff members of Medowie Coles registered for the popular event, and hired a bus to travel down in the early hours of Sunday morning.
City2surf is a popular road running event held annually in Sydney, covering a fourteen-kilometre course.
The event is a fun run, as well as a competitive road race – attracting individual competitors, community groups and competitive runners alike.
The event attracts more than 80,000 entrants and is this year in its forty fifth year, since beginning in 1971.
The staff of Medowie Coles used the opportunity to get together and fundraise for ‘Redkite’ – an Australian Cancer charity that provides essential support to children and young people 0-24 years who are suffering from Cancer.
One of the Coles participants, Julie Williams told News Of The Area the day was a wonderful success.
“We all had a wonderful time, raising money for a great cause. Some of our team remarked that it was gruelling, but eye-opening and left us with a wonderful sense of accomplishment.”
The Coles Medowie teamed closed event with over $800 raised for Redkite.
The Coles team also wishes to thank the management of Coles Medowie for donating the entrant fee for any staff member wanting to enter the race and be a part of the fundraiser.
