The Clicks 2013 Run for the Kids team had much to celebrate last week, coming in second place for the 15km long course event. Now in its sixth year of entering a corporate team for the event that supports the Royal Children’s Hospital, Team Clicks had over 140 entrants sporting the familiar team shirts.
“Run for the Kids is an event that is particularly close to our heart at Clicks,” said Ben Wood, Clicks’ Managing Director. “Our Chairman, Tony Beddison, was also Chairman of the Royal Children’s Hospital from 2004 up until December last year, so we’ve always felt a strong connection to the fantastic work done by the RCH team. It’s hard to imagine that our first team had fewer than 40 people, and this year there were over 140 of us.”
On the day it was great to see so many people running for a particular cause. It’s a charity that a lot of people have been touched by at some point in their lives and the Run is a fantastic coming-together for Clicks’ staff, contractors, clients and their families. Leading up to the day there was plenty of discussion among the team about training programs, running with prams, beating times from last year and more. It’s a wonderful feeling of community spirit.
Clicks has raised over $20,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital through entry fees alone since its first team entry in 2008. Sponsoring over 600 runners during that time it’s definitely an event that all Clicksters look forward to each year.
