Congratulations to our U12 and U13 age-groups who achieved an equal-first performance of 18 laps at Relayathon for 2018-19. It was actually 16, but as we ran in lane 8 we've adjusted the lap count to account for the longer lap distance. This was 5 more laps than our winning group last year - well done!
Our overall tally was 131 laps, an improvement of 1 over last year.
Thanks to everyone who donated we raised $108.35 in cash on the day. The Centre will match this donation, but we are still about $500 off our target so please go to everydayhero and give generously. If every family gave $1 per lap their children's age-groups completed we'd hit the target easily.
We also pledged to donate $250 plus $3 per lap to the Monash Children's Hospital - therefore we've donated $643 via the Monash everydayhero page.
The age-group lap breakdown was:
U6 = 11
U7 = 12
U8 = 12
U9 = 16
U10 = 12
U11 = 12
U12 = 18
U13 = 18
U14-16 = 16
Plus 4 laps in between the age-group timeslots.
A big thank you to everyone who donated to our Relayathon appeal, and of course to all of the kids (and parents) who kept the baton moving all morning.
We ran a total of 130 laps, with our U13's taking out the Age Group Challenge 13 laps. The Age-Group lap breakdown was as follows:
U6 = 10
U7 = 12
U8 = 11
U9 = 12
U10 = 11
U11 = 12
U12 = 12
U13 = 13
U14/15/16 = 12
We raised $294 in cash donations on the day. We promised to match this and therefore we have donated a total of $588 to the Royal Children's Hospital via our everydayhero page. Donations can still be made here.
In addition, we pledged to donate a base amount of $250 to the Monash Children's Hospital, with an additional $3 per lap, so we have donated a total of $640 to the Monash Children's Hospital.
