An enriched community spirit, more than $30,000 raised for Myeloma Australia and more than 1000 people who enjoyed the family-fun atmosphere inspired Gold sponsors Ritchies Mt Eliza and Peninsula Hot Springs, and Community Partner Ryman Healthcare, to support the MY Mount Eliza Run & Fun Festival and Myeloma Australia for a second year.
Ritchies Supermarkets chief executive Fred Harrison said he was impressed by the community values the event upheld and couldn’t wait to be a part of it again at its new venue at Mount Eliza Regional Park on Sunday, March 25. “Our values align with the festival and we like to support and encourage our local community to come together for an annual event that promotes a strong and happy community who are motivated to give and champion others,” Fred said. The support shown for the festival extends through to the Ritchies Community Benefits Card, where Myeloma Australia is set up as a benefactor.
Peninsula Hot Springs general manager Brook Ramage said his organisation embraced the festival’s focus on health and wellbeing. “Our involvement in the festival last year was very rewarding so it’s a pleasure to be involved again this year,” Brook said.
Ryman Healthcare community relations director Robert Taylor said residents and the organisation’s employees enjoyed participating last year and embraced the community’s commitment to raising money for Myeloma Australia.
