This year's Fun Run has chosen to raise money for Bushfire Relief Fund in association with the Lions Club. To help Farmers & families recover after the devastating fires that swept throughout Gippsland. Lions have always been a part of emergency support within Australia. Whether it be by providing direct help as members of the local bushfire brigade or SES, helping out as tradespeople in rebuilding efforts, providing food, clothing and a friendly face to emergency workers; or raising dollars to help local communities recover – Lions are there
