The third annual Bli Bli Unite Fun Run & Walk this year was a huge success breaking records both in terms of the number of participants and the funds raised for domestic violence education and victim support.
The event on Sunday 22nd September, organised by Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch and Bli Bli Little Athletics, attracted 411 participants and raised an enormous $20,606.19.
Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch president Edith Blanck will present the funds raised to White Ribbon Sunshine Coast and Sonshine Domestic Violence Refuges on Monday 30th at 1.30pm at the Bli Bli Boardrooms.
Mrs Blanck said $10,000 would be provided to White Ribbon Sunshine Coast, $1,000 each to Sonshine Refuge and Lily House with a further $4,000 worth of IGA food vouchers to be provided to domestic violence victims through the refuges. As part of Bli Bli Neighbourhood Watch’s Youth in Community Program, $2500 would be provided to Bli Bli Little Athletics with $2,000 to be used by BBNW directly for its programs.
