Running in Geelong

from w
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day - for running. Now, I can't run at all these days but we did see lots of people, mainly young, wearing the Geelong Run T-shirts as we were leaving Geelong to drive to Altona Meadows yesterday morning. A huge event for Geelong.And there was also a Cancer Awareness run in Melbourne and many of the Altona Meadows/Laverton church people were in that one, including Sue the minister who still wore her Cancer Awareness T-shirt as she led worship after 10 a.m. Way to go.
From Addie:

MORE than 12,000 runners, walkers and rollers made their way through Geelong under azure skies yesterday, for the fifth annual Run Geelong.
A sea of white and blue T-shirts filled the city in the morning, as people of all ages and abilities came together to raise funds for the redevelopment of Geelong Hospital's special care nursery.
Serious athletes, recreational runners and regular Joes participated in the six and 12 kilometre runs, and six kilometre walk. Most wore the standard issue Run Geelong T-shirts but some added a splash of colour and a bit of fun with face paint and novelty costumes.
An estimated 20,000 people competed in or attended the event, raising a record $532,156 for the hospital appeal.
