Team Finnan’s Gift – We Smashed It!


Team Finnan's Gift was a huge success at the 2015 Melbourne Marathon, raising more than $16,000 to help children born with a Congenital Heart Disease.  We simply can't thank team members enough for their superb energy, fundraising and outstanding race day performances.


It was so awesome spending time with each and every team member at Team Finnan's Gift HQ (aka the Collingwood Football Club).  Everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves and our setup was pretty damn cool (if we do say so ourselves!).  The sun was shining and finishing our races in the ‘G’ was definitely a massive highlight.  Checkout the super cool collage below and enjoy reliving the day in pictures!


On the sport side of things, there were so many notable performances.  Sincere congratulations go to both Jarrad and Matt, who completed the full 42km marathon. Also, a huge shout out to our half-marathon runners Gavin, Nick, James, Brent and Dale who all dug deep to record either a personal best or finish in under two hours! There were also some great times in the 10km — Olly, Taryn and the Girls — and others who battled through cramps and injuries — Richard and Roy — to get themselves across the line. To our families — the James's, Lazaro's, Dickson's, Seabrook's, Bowe's, Frenchies, Johnston's, Tran's and the Slater's — thank you for bringing such great community engagement and fun to the team this year.


Each and every team member, young or old, walking or running, was a total star and we simply loved seeing all of you in your Team Finnan's Gift t-shirts with big smiles on your faces!


Thank you again for another tremendous year. We are so proud of you all on so many levels. We hope you will join us again in 2016 (and invite others to get involved too).
