Going the distance for mental health with new local running festival
On June 6 at Stuart Park in Wollongong, 600 runners of all ages turned up to participate in a new event that is supporting mental health – the Wollongong Running Festival.
Eager to throw its support behind this worthy cause, Ericom signed up to be a key sponsor of the event.
A fundraiser for Lifeline South Coast, the festival consisted of four running events – a 2k Kids Fun Run, a 5k Fun Run/Walk, a 10k run and a Half Marathon. The community got behind the cause, raising much needed funds for the area.
Lifeline South Coast is an indispensable local charity and crisis support service that took 24,000 calls in the year to June.
A big kudos to all participants, cheer squads, spectators, and sponsors on a fantastic day for a great cause. Ericom promotes physical and mental wellbeing and are proud to support this important event.
