CHARITY RACE SETS NEW RECORD

Challenge raises $200,000 this year
WESTERN Sydney law firm, Coleman Greig Lawyers, held the Coleman Greig Challenge for the seventh year in a row recently.
The Challenge is Western Sydney’s largest corporate charity race with over 600 people present on the day and $200,000 raised this year.
 
Since the Coleman Greig Challenge started in 2013, the firm has raised over $1M for children with special needs and newborn care.
 
Former-Olympian and Doctor, Jana Pittman officially started this year’s race and awarded medals at the fundraising breakfast along with Deputy Lord Mayor of Parramatta, Michelle Garrard.
 
Race founder and Principal within Coleman Greig’s Commercial Property team Andrew Grima described the 2019 Coleman Greig Challenge as a terrific success.
 
“We love the way the Coleman Greig Challenge brings the community and businesses together, there is an option for everyone to be part of the Challenge! You can walk, run, cycle or volunteer,” said Mr Grima.
 
“Over the years we have built a wonderful community spirit in Western Sydney which is seen year in, year out, and each year the challenge gets bigger and better. Bring on next year.”
 
“Thank you to all our participants, volunteers, corporate sponsors and everyone who has generously donated and fundraised, together we have raised over $200,000.”
 
“The money raised goes towards the purchase of vital equipment which makes a real difference to the lives of children in need,” Mr Grima said.
 
The funds raised are going towards Westmead Hospital Foundation, St Gabriel’s School Castle Hill and the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC).
 
Coleman Greig Lawyers is proud to work with sponsors and participants and takes great pride in fundraising for charitable organisations, who provide much needed assistance to the families of children with special needs and newborn care.
 
The Coleman Greig Challenge GoFundraise page will remain open until October 31, with all the new donations being added to the overall fundraising total, which will be split evenly between the event’s three charity beneficiaries:
