Elders Bega are excited to be behind local man Dane Waites, who is raising money to be able to run from Perth to Pambula to raise money for Autism Awareness

A group of runners including Rod and Joccoaa from our office are heading to Canberra for the Canberra Marathon weekend to run in events from 5km to the full marathon.

Details on the fundraising can be found here and there is a Facebook page here that also has a lot of information.

“Dane Waites is an incredible young man with a spectacular dream. He is going to run from Perth to Pambula, a distance of over 3,000km in 2016. He will be raising money for Autism program’s & research.

To achieve his dream Dane needs to raise $50,000 to employ a coordinator to organise the trip.

To help raise the money for the coordinator we are calling for interested runners to set a goal at the Canberra Marathon weekend on April 11 & 12 2015. With events at 5km, 10km, 1/2 marathon & Marathon distance there should be a challenge for everyone to target. Tell all your friends about the run you enter & ask them to donate to help Dane’s Dream come true.

We will be producing a running singlet to help commemorate your achievement – if you know of a business who would like to contribute to the fundraising please ask them to contact Rod at rodney@eldersbega.com.au. Singlets will then be available a cost price to all runners & supporters.”
