On the rainy morning of Saturday July 6, 8 motivated BallyCara Friends and 4 keen BallyCara staff members braced the weather to walk the Gold Coast Marathon 5.7km event. Our team, made up of Logan and Gold Coast Wellness Clients and staff, were ready to compete. Since the announcement a mere 5 weeks prior, the BallyCara team worked hard to prepare for the big day. The rain held off during the event when the starting gun went off at 8a.m. It was an enjoyable walk with some fantastic views of Runaway Bay and Broadwater Parklands along the way. With the goal of some clients to finish before the ‘cut of time’ of 1 hour 20 minutes, we were thrilled to have all team members across the finish line by 1 hour 7 minutes! Congratulations to staff members Elise, Libby, Jess and Dawn with clients Kerry, Betty, Rachel, Marg, Jan, Chris, Joan and Trish. Each team member received a finishing shirt and medal for their achievements. Bring on Gold Coast Marathon 2020!
