JULY 2014: Corporate Triathlon
Two teams from C&R recently participated in the Sportscene Superwarehouse Townsville Triathlon Festival (www.townsvilletrifestival.org.au), which proudly supports the Townsville Hospital Foundation (www.thfoundation.org.au), the sole fundraising organisation for the Townsville Hospital. The foundation makes funds available for medical equipment, research, specialist services, and education. The Townsville Hospital cares for more than a quarter of North Queensland patients every year, and patients come from all over the region. C&R believes the Hospital is a very worthy recipient of the funds raised by the Triathlon Festival and is delighted to have contributed as part of our community support programme.
Our two teams, the C&R Movers and the C&R Shakers, competed in the TP Human Capital Teams Triathlon, with each team member completing one leg of the race: 400 m swim, 16 km bike ride or 4 km run. Both teams took about one hour to complete the race, but the Movers stayed true to form and pipped the Shakers at the post by 2 whole minutes! It was a great day in the winter sun for a good cause, and we all did some exercise, too!
