Emily Raeburn (and her Mum Nicole and Dad Michael) met up with Club Lennox GM, Geoff Martin a the Club recently, to pick up a very special item.
It was a cheque for $200—sponsorship for 15-year-old Emily’s upcoming trip to Sydney where she was to compete in the State Schools Cross Country Competition.
Having already achieved an impressive 4th in the qualifiers, completing a 4 kilometre course in a PB of just 15 mins 30 seconds, Emily is in good form.
The Xavier student has been competing in the sport since she was 8 years old.
‘Everyone can run, so I found it an easy to sport to start, and I loved it from the beginning,’ she says.
According to Geoff, ‘This is just the kind of sponsorship that fits with the Club’s values and goals—to support the community at this grass roots level. We were really happy to help Emily out and wish her all the best.’
We’ll give you an update on Emily’s progress as soon as it comes to hand.
