Swan River Run anyone?? Andrew and I are super excited to be putting our names to this years WAtoday Swan River Run presented by Westpac.
Having both been heavily involved in sport over many years we thought it was a great opportunity to get more West Aussies thinking about health and fitness. We are both busy people but we value the importance of keeping healthy and doing regular exercise. Life is just that much better when you are looking after yourself!
We both love to run but it’s a hell of a lot more fun when it’s in large groups or with your mates . So even if you’re not a runner, grab some friends and come join us. This year the run consists of a five and a 14km walk or run and just by participating you have the opportunity to raise funds for your favourite charity.
This year we are running for the Westpac Foundation which raises much needed funds for non-for-profit organisations. They are aiming to raise funds of more than $200,000 in 2016 for more than 350 charities.
My advice for potential runners? Just pull on your shoes and get going! It doesn’t matter if you stop and start, if you go for 10 minutes or an hour, just getting you shoes on and push yourself out the door! That’s the hardest part. Once you’re out the door you will feel fabulous and free I promise. I’m yet to hear someone regret having gone for a run….
Come join us! The run is Sunday the 24th July. For more details on how to enter visit www.swanriverrun.com.au
