For some last Saturday was the start of a relaxing weekend but not for the Hanrick Curran Great Adventure Challenge team! The team of eight joined 15 other corporate teams in the Startlight Foundation Great Adventure Challenge to compete in the exciting, demanding and challenging race. The race consisted of navigating through 35km mountain biking, 15km trail run, 10km kayak leg, 2km of obstacles and mystery tasks along the way, testing both their brain and body.
Their sheer determination and drive saw the team come through and place 1st overall and hold the title of being the first team on the day to do it in under 6 hours. A huge achievement for them all!
The race didn't just start on Saturday for the team they have raffled, cooked, begged and borrowed to raising a total of $4,500 to brighten the lives of seriously ill children in Australia.
Well done to Wendy Low, Luke Stevenson, Jenny Rens, Matthew Greig, Jarryd Lazzarini, Shaun Donaldson, Jimmy Barrett and Marnie Bateman.
