2017 was all about smashing records for Team Finnan’s Gift (and looking fabulous while doing it, thanks to a brand new Team t-shirt)!

 

With an fantastic team of over 100 runners and walkers, we have been able to raise a record breaking figure of…

 

$29,791.26!

 

How unbelievable is that!? We hope everyone who donated can feel so proud knowing that every cent will be going straight to the purchase of cutting-edge equipment for the RCH's Cardiac Department.

 

We were so pleased to be able to use Collingwood FC’s amazing new Glasshouse as our Team Headquarters this year, and the energy in the room was enough to give you chills. So many people together with the sole aim of raising funds and awareness for Congential Heart Disease - absolutely incredible! 

 

A very special shout out needs to go to Gavin, our superstar Marathon runner! Our Half Marathon contingent was very impressive, with Oliver Camplin-Warner, Richard French, William Guiney, James Kus, Anthony Seabrook, Lachlan Buszard and Paul Sporton leading the way! We also had an incredible number of individuals signed up to the 10k and 5.7k, simply too many to name, well done guys!

 

It was great to see a lot of families/friendship groups getting involved as well – the McMahon’s, the Mahoney’s, the Seabrook’s, the Slater’s, the Smithell’s, and the Weston’s, just to name a few! It really is so inspiring to see families and so many people coming together to support Finnan’s Gift!

 

We really cannot thank everyone enough who supported Team Finnan’s Gift for the 2016 Melbourne Marathon - every effort, whether you ran or not, truly means the world to us, and for that we are eternally grateful!
