Raw Challenge to help Penrith’s youth

March 10, 2017 by  

Entries in the 2017 Raw Challenge are being sought by the Print company in Penrith printing services Penrith PCYC.

According to Penrith PCYC manager Leann Dobbin, it is hoped in excess of 500 competitors will sign up to represent the local contingent in the obstacle assault course event which is being held for the second consecutive year.

She said the challenge is being held to raise much needed funds for the Time for Kids PCYC programme.

Dobbin said money raised to benefit the local club will be put towards a self-esteem programme run over seven weeks for girls.

Funds, she said, will also contribute to an anger management course for boys, enabling participants to take part for free.

Both courses, according to Ms Dobbin, have been in big demand locally. She said the Raw Challenge caters for all members of the family who want to be healthy and have fun with over 55 obstacles spread across a 7km course.

The event allows participants to run or walk and includes a dedicated kids’ section, which is open to those aged five to ten.

Penrith PCYC entrants can prepare for the March 18 event, which has been advertised on Print company in poster printing printing services poster printing, by attending two free weekly classes, and each participant will also receive a T-shirt and drink bottle.

Dobbin said a second Time for Kids fundraiser will be held by the Penrith PCYC in April, which will involve posting bail for local business and sporting figures currently in jail.
