Tim Cronin, from the Community Inclusion team, shares a great story about one of his members, Shannon.
On Friday the 6th of July Shannon and I participated the 5km ‘Run with Rob’ to celebrate Rob de Castella as the official Ambassador for the 2012 Chevron City To Surf.
This was a great event that gave people of all abilities, ages and fitness levels a chance to have a practice at the City to Surf and rub shoulders with one of Australia’s greatest athletes.
Shannon did great and ran the 5km in just under 30 minutes - an impressive time!
Shannon has recently been linked into a football team so this has given him a great opportunity to increase his fitness and stamina.
Shannon is one of my members and we also play basketball, go to the gym and do athletics, all of which are getting him footy ready.
Shannon ran the city to surf last year so this year he might run it again and we'll be cheering him on!
