    PCRG/Gold Coast 2012 Charity: "Dig deep for Harri"
    Harrison (Harri) Creevy was born 1997, and developed normally to the age of 3½ years, at which stage he became very ill with Murray Valley Encephalitis in the February of 2001. He was admitted to hospital in Mt Isa, then later transferred to Townsville where he was put on life support in the ICU, in a medically induced coma.

    Harrison (lives in Tarragindi) now has spasticity quadriplegia, leaving him reliant on others for communication, food, mobility, bathing, positioning and toileting, and thus requires constant supervision. He also suffers from epilepsy and an interrupted swallow, putting further emphasis on the need for constant supervision. Harrison requires complete assistance to get him into and out of the car, wheelchair, seating, bath and bed. More details here.

    PCRG Pre Coast Shindig: "An evening with Pat Farmer & Charity Auction".
    Great news: I've locked in Pat Farmer as the guest speaker at our Pre Gold Coast Shindig on Friday June 22. I encourage you to lock this date in. I heard Pat speak last week and he's nothing short of inspirational.

    Charity Auction: Luke Farrelly (son of Ann O'Brien/PCRG member) has severe cerebral palsy, is severely visually impaired and has epilepsy. Luke is 13 and lives daily with the challenges of his disabilities. Our aim for the Auction is to raise enough funds to purchase a regency chair, which is a chair that folds down into a bed and is on wheels. Auction items required and please touch base with me if you can assist.

    I was the race starter at the Men's Health Urbanathlon in Sydney yesterday. There were 3500 competitors and were sent off 50 at a time. That's "70" starts between 7.30am and 9am. Video is a shot of yours truly sending off the 65th wave. I did this 70 times over VIDEO.

    Catch you in the aim for a rip snorter 500m session in the gardens and there's less than 10 weeks to go!



    P.S. Noosa takes place Sunday week: Lock it in Eddie!

    Noosa Half Marathon/Noosa Mizuno 10k - May 6

    I rate the Noosa Half Marathon and 10k course as being one of Australia's fastest. The start is on Noosa Parade with the finish line situated in the Lions Park. The 21.1km run is over two laps of a completely flat course that heads out along the Noosa River to Tewantin. The Mizuno Noosa 10k follows the same route but only one lap, while the 5km run/walk is also over one lap, out and back along famous Noosa Parade.

    The added bonus this year is the fact we don't have to rush home to the "here we go again" Mondayitis. Monday May 7 is a public holiday (Labour Day).

    This will be an ideal pre Gold Coast hit out and there'll be a strong PCRG showing.

    PCRG Sponsor: Mizuno

    Intraining stocks a full range of Mizuno shoes and apparel.

    Thank you Mizuno for being a PCRG sponsor!

    PCRG Sponsor - Milan on Main

    Located in the exciting Tedder Avenue restaurant precinct at Main Beach on the Gold Coast. Milan on Main is Italian style Al fresco dining at its best.

    The atmosphere at Milan on Main is warm and cosy, the staff professional, friendly and attentive, the food delicious - a combination that has locals and visitors alike returning time and time again to Milan on Main.

    Thank you Milan on Main for being a PCRG sponsor!

    PCRG's Best Sponsor of all time!

    The Ship Inn has been PCRG's home since inception and we're forever grateful.

    Thanks heaps John!

    PCRG Sponsor - Pizza Capers

    The year was 1996 and at the time the convenience food market was overflowing with cheap and nasty 'junk' food. There was a real need for change, and it came from the relaxed and leafy suburb of Kenmore in Brisbane's west - the location of the very first Pizza Capers kitchen.

    Thank you Pizza Capers for being a PCRG sponsor.

    PCRG Sponsor - Scody

    SCODY delivers distinctive and original designs inspired by you and current international design trends. We bring your ideas to life. There are no restrictions on design or the number of colours. Designs are delivered in rich colour and fine levels of detail.

    Thank you Scody for being a PCRG sponsor.

    Hilly Socks - second to none!

    I met Ron Hill pre 1986 London Marathon - Ron is a true legend! This meeting encouraged me to try "Hilly Socks" some 25 years later. I'm particularly impressed with the Mono Skins and can honestly say they're the best fitting sock I've ever worn.

    Hilly Socks are professionally made with comfort second to none!
