Marathon man runs for the kids

01 Feb 2011

Marathon man runs for the kids Image

Australia’s favourite marathon runner Steve Moneghetti dropped into Docklands last month to check the route for this year’s Run For The Kids.

The Commonwealth Games gold medallist was in Docklands as race director for Victoria’s biggest fun run which is on again this year on Sunday, April 17.

The event will swing through Docklands, bringing with it 33,000 competitors, as they head off the Bolte Bridge and back to the Botanical Gardens.

The Run For The Kids has raised $3.7million for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal and organisers hope to again raise more than $1million this year.

Joining Steve in Docklands was Team 100km, a team of enthusiasts who, collectively, are aiming at raising more than $100,000 this year.

In our photo (right), Steve is with Cristy and Perry McCluskey of Coburg.  Cristy’s husband organises Team 100Km and, with the birth of Perry late last year, the family has even more reason to “run for the kids”.
