The Coleman Greig Challenge: Friday October 20, Parramatta Park
27 Jul 2017
On the morning of Friday October 20, local businesses and families will assemble in Parramatta Park to take part in the Coleman Greig Challenge to raise funds for children with special needs and for newborn care.
This will be the 5th year that Western Sydney’s businesses and locals will run, ride or walk alongside each other – and ambassador Jana Pittman. In past years, over 600 people have taken part before enjoying a complimentary breakfast and award presentation before heading to the office.
The Coleman Greig Challenge is an opportunity to get fit, have fun and rub shoulders with hundreds of local businesses and residents while donating funds to My Westmead, Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, and St Gabriel’s School for Children with Special Needs.
Athlete, mum, doctor in training and event ambassador Jana Pittman is thrilled to be on board for this year’s challenge which she says is a great way for businesses to support organisations making a difference to the lives of children and their families.
Many of this year’s participants have already started training, donning their Fitbits and Lycra to train outdoors in Parramatta Park and in local gyms – some with their sights set on beating last year’s cycling champions Raine & Horne or crossing the line ahead of their business competitors!
Businesses and individuals can sign up now at https://colemangreigchallenge2017.gofundraise.com.au as sponsors and supporters for the 2.5km Walk in the Park, 5km and 10km runs and three grades of cycling.
