Fremantle “Port to Port” Merges into Fremantle Fun Run

It is with a little sadness mixed with looking forward that we announce that the Fremantle Port to Port Fun run is no more.  It has been merged into the new “mega” fun run through Fremantle.

The event was continuing to grow each year.  And thanks to our dedicated sub committee plus a willing band of sponsors and volunteers the Port to Port was developing into a great event.  Even more importantly, over the relatively short time of three years that the event  has run we have raised significant funds for Red Kite (kids with Cancer) and our local community partners.

So how/why did this happen?   Earlier this year, whilst trying to find an operator for the event, to organise the 2012 event ,we contacted an organisation that runs the City to Surf in Perth.  They informed us they were going to stage a “mega” run through Fremantle at a similar time to our event.  After much discussion and soul searching we decided the best course of action was to merge our event into this much larger event.  As part of the merge process, the  Rotary Club of Fremantle  will for the next five years ,receive an amount each year from the proceeds of this event to help us to keep helping others.

So whilst the Fremantle Port to Port Fun Run is no more Fremantle Rotary will still be there.  A quick thankyou to our runners and walkers, our sponsors, and all the volunteers and supporters.  We look forward to seeing you all at the new event.
