Our inaugaral Capital One Race for Kids was a huge success! One hundred and twenty participants competed in a 5km race with a series of 10 fun checkpoint challenges. The race began with teams wrapped in plastic and running across George Street Park to get their first clue (top right). Teams displayed their creativity with a variety of costumes. The winning team, Wheelers and Dealers: Anthony & Emmanuelle Polito, Greg Evans, Jenn Johnson & Greg Dowdall (right) donated their first prize win of $5,000 back to the Club.
