Sue signs on for the big run

By Lachlan Durling

IF YOU are doing something for yourself why not find a way to help the community while you do it?

It was this thinking that led Sue Reid right to the doorstep of Community Living and Respite Services (CLRS) to take part in this year’s Johnno’s Run.

Sue is a fresh face to the Run Melbourne event, but she’s making her fundraising mark in a big way — as are many of this year’s participants — thanks to local sponsorship of $1000 from her husband Ian at Border Electrical and Refrigeration Services.

Running the 5km, Sue said her training was coming along well, with the July 28 deadline keeping her motivated.

‘‘I like running and so I thought it’d be a good idea to do it for a good cause,’’ she said.

‘‘The training has been good, I do parkrun on Saturday and some of my own training about three times during the week.

‘‘Running for a cause keeps you inspired and it’s nice to be doing something in the community.’’
