Lifestart’s Kayak for Kids has triumphantly paddled through calm waters to proclaim unbridled success! With strong currents pushing the fundraising barometer it has reached a new 6 year high! Thanks to the generosity of over 1000 paddlers and supporters yesterday on Sydney Harbour!
Along with the amazing efforts of both professional and novice paddlers (arriving at beautiful Blues Point before 6am and taking in yesterday’s breathtaking sunrise), some phenomenal participants played an integral part in the extraordinary success! And so too our wonderful and generous volunteers who gave freely of their time to make the day a huge success. We thank you all.
A team of revered Australians chose to become Ambassadors for Lifestart’s 2013 Kayak for Kids event including Iron Man and fitness guru, Guy Leech; Olympian and Race Director for the world famous Molokai Classic in Hawaii Shelley Oates-Wilding; Mark Tonga whose life has been impacted by a catastrophic Rugby injury; Paralympian and winner of the Boston Marathon Paul Nunnari; and Australia’s latest silver medalist from the London Olympics, Jessica Fox. Along with their inspiring stories, autographs and generosity of spirit and time, they added an extra dimension to a very successful and fun filled day.
The winner of the Hawaiian Airlines trip for two to Hawaii and entry to the Molokai Classic was Tim Jacobs - Congratulations Tim and a big thank you to Hawaiian Airlines and Shelley Oates-Wilding for kindly donating this prize.
Congratulations to team Servcorp 1 who were the first relay team across the line.
