Our Grants & Scholarships Program has enabled some of our colleagues to come together to participate in a community event, all the while getting to know one another in a different environment to our usual working space!
They all loved it and are looking forward to next year – here's what a couple of them had to say;
We had a great day, such team players. Was really good to get together. For me personally I have always wanted to do be a part of the HBF Run For A Reason team, to feel valued and included. This year I did it, with my walking partner Suzie. Will be doing it again next year for sure. Thank you for allowing us to use the Small Sparks grant!
It was great taking part as a team. Northern Beaches put in a big effort. We walked with Rosie, who was an inspirational leader, as always.
The challenge of the tunnel was a bit like our new Working Locally model. We went from the light of the familiar into a warm sticky noisy situation of being guided by ceiling lights only but emerged energised and focused into the light with the finish line in sight. The added bonus was that I was able to get sponsored to the tune of $165 for ACT, BELONG, COMMIT.
The Small Sparks Grant helped me see Perth from a different perspective and to enjoy the amazing atmosphere at the HBF run. It was a great event to be part of and being able to do it with some friends from work meant I had help to get across that finish line!
