IF YOU'VE ALWAYS thought of the term 'fun run' as an
oxymoron, you must have missed Mittagong Preschool's
annual Fun Run staged successfully for the last two years.
"Our Fun Run is not only a successful fundraiser for the
Preschool but it has now become a real community event",
says the preschool's director Pauline Iacono.
2010 Bush Fun Run
IN SUPPORT OF MITTAGONG PRESCHOOL KINDERGARTEN INCORPORATED...
Last year's fun run attracted more than 500 people, dozens
of whom travelled from Sydney, Wollongong and Canberra
to take part. Around $5000 was raised in 2009 which
went towards air-conditioning and assisted the preschool in
upgrading the outdoor play area. The money raised this year
will help fund projects around the preschool, in particular, the
purchase of new resources for the children.
This year's fun run is on Sunday, August 22. It starts at
the Welby Hockey Fields and winds its way through the
picturesque surrounding bush fire trails. Registration opens at
8am, with races commencing at 9am. Depending on your
energy level and inclination, you can sign up for the 2km,
5km or 10km. And, in case you're wondering, the fun run
can be as challenging or as easy-going as you want it to be.
"Some runners from 2008 came back last year to improve
their times, while on the shorter routes, families could take a
stroll together and enjoy the scenery at their leisure," explains
Sonia Dunn, Fun Run Coordinator on the Preschool's Parent
Management Committee. ⁄
