Finite run raises record funding for children’s hospital

By

A team from leading IT services and recruitment provider, The Finite Group, has set a fund-raising record at this year’s 44th Sydney City2Surf 14km fun run on Sunday 10 August.

With 85,000 entrants, the City2Surf is the largest organised community event of its type in the world, with corporate teams like Finite regular starters.

A team of four from Finite - depleted by two due to illness  - ran the picturesque route from Sydney’s CBD, through the eastern suburbs, up the notorious ‘Heartbreak Hill’ and then down again to Bondi.

Finite General Manager, Duncan Thomson, noted that “it was perfect running weather, not too hot, and there were more live bands and well-wishers lining the route than ever before.”

This all helps to make it a very special day, and all the more enjoyable for those participating.  Our team achieved some great times, with three runners completing the punishing course within 90 minutes.

“We are also very fortunate to have some very generous supporters who did a magnificent job sponsoring the team to raise in excess of $7,500 for the Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation, a wonderful charity.  

“A truly fantastic result and $1,200 up on last year’s fund raising total – wow!”

The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation is the principal fundraising body for the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, dedicated to working with the community to improve the quality of life for this and future generations of seriously ill children.

The foundation financially supports the hospital to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment, support life-saving services, and undertake medical and child health research. For more information go here
