EDITORIAL REPORT FOR CWD Saturday 5th March 2022

Kinisha Roweth


Today and tomorrow is the Orange Running Festival. Good luck to all those who are participating over the weekend. I am looking forward to seeing everyone being in an event and seeing how everyone goes.

On the Sunday, long-time senior members of ORC will be doing their red-hot best to complete the marathon event. The primary goal is to support John Moss in his fundraising effort in supporting the amazing work the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia through the Dick Potts Memorial Marathon. John will about the full marathon while (L to R in the photo), Bill Fairgrieve, Basil Baldwin, (John Moss), Brian Rix, Brian Sharp and Russell Tym will be making their way along the marathon course as a relay team. Background information and an invitation to help support the PCFA can be found HERE.
