City to Surf 2016

Well done on all your runs whether running for pleasure and a great workout or to really smash your shorts off! We had over 60 rejoovers with kids from as young as 10 right through to our over 60s. Thanks everyone for the fun celebrations at our Rejoov-Love Mercy tent post race and everyone for helping with set up and food/drinks provisions. We were thrilled our sponsor ICG CEO Himanshu Dua could also be there. The Cassie twins are still munching on those baguettes. 

Thanks for all your wonderful support for the Love Mercy Foundation, here you can see our team fundraising, which we've completed now with C2S: http://www.lovemercyfoundation.org/607 . Love Mercy achieved their goal of 5,000 women in the Cents for Seeds program. The Compass ABC documentary "Olympians 4 Love" about The Love Mercy Foundation & founders Eloise Wellings & Julius Achon stories, aired on 7th August and featured our Rejoov training session with Julius. The Doc ignited a huge influx of fundraising directly to Love Mercy which was fantastic. A big shout out to Rejoover Louise Heywood, researcher from Compass for bringing that documentary to fruition. 

Here's Chris' entertaining blog about the big day: http://runnerct.blogspot.com.au/2016/08/city-to-surf.html
