Seaford runners unite to build clubhouse

November 1, 2017 by  

A wetlands fun run with three different options has been organised in aid of funds to build a clubhouse for those coping with mental illnesses.

Participants can enter to walk or run for 5 km, or run for 10 km. There is also a 2 km run for children, with a fitness warm-up before the start. All courses will take place on the existing sealed walking and cycling track through the natural Seaford wetlands.

The event has been jointly organised by the Seaford Little Athletics Centre and Rotary Peninsula 2.0. These two organisations run several fundraisers throughout the year for various causes. Events such as this might also make use of local print services such as flyer and banner printing to create awareness.

This fun run will raise funds for the building of the Kindred Clubhouse, a local initiative to help those suffering from mental illness. Clubhouses of this kind already exist in other states and have proved successful in mental health recovery. Kindred Clubhouse will benefit the Frankston, Mornington Peninsula area.

The Seaford Wetlands Fun Run starts from the Seaford North Primary School on Sunday, November 26. The day promises to be fun for the whole family. Prices are $40 for adults and $25 for children 16 and under. There is also a family ticket of $110 for two adults and two children. Participants can register online through the wetlands fun run website.
