Shepparton Runners Club (SRC) members may not have been able to lace up and strip down for a great cause last Sunday, but that didn’t stop them from contributing. Today the SRC donated $800 to the Cupid’s Undie Run, Shepparton, which will go towards the Children’s Tumour Foundation.

Cupid’s Shepparton, race director, Kerry Connolly said, ”I was blown away with the donation. We were sad to not be having our run, but this has lifted our spirits”.

Mathieu Ryan said, “In a time with so many negatives within the community, it was great to remind people that there are still good things happening.”

More than fifty ran in last year’s Undie Run and were greatly disappointed that they could not get down to basics and compete in this year’s run.
