Five of the company’s staff volunteered, braving the cold winds and intermittent drizzle, to run along with 85,000 other entrants, the full distance from Sydney’s CBD out through the Eastern suburbs, up the notorious “Heartbreak Hill” and down again to Bondi.
Team Finite was raising funds for Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia, the peak national body for prostate cancer in Australia. Every year around 20,000 Australian men are diagnosed and almost 3,300 die of this disease, making prostate cancer the second largest cause of male cancer deaths after lung cancer.
This year’s Finite team raised over $4500 - with final pledges still being registered - slightly up on last year’s total.
Commented Finite’s General Manager, Duncan Thomson: “We may not have had as many runners participate, but the team still performed brilliantly well and did a fantastic job with the team fundraising. Feedback was very positive with everyone enjoying the event and the unique carnival atmosphere it generates.”
