Registrations for the 2012 West End Mighty River Run have boaties throughout the state digging deep to take part in this five-day adventure, which will see them cruising for a cause along the Murray River. It’s all in support of one of the state’s largest children’s charities, Novita Children’s Services.
The brainchild of Novita Ambassadors, John Riddell (Channel 7) and Jason ‘Snowy’ Carter (Mix 102.3), the event will see up to 40 boats cast off from Blanchetown on November 19, and passing through Kingston-on-Murray, Berri, Renmark and Chowilla Station, before docking for the last time at the end of a packed week in Renmark on November 23.
Funds raised from this year’s event will go toward building a new hydrotherapy pool and an intensive rehabilitation complex planned for Novita’s Regency Park Centre in Adelaide. This will be a place for children with disabilities to receive important hydrotherapy and give them access to a purpose-built gym and other equipment designed to help them receive the best possible support as part of their individual therapy programs. Novita’s existing pools were constructed in 1976 and now need to be upgraded to enable vital hydrotherapy to continue into the future.
Novita is a nationally recognised leader in the research, development and provision of quality services to children and young people living with disabilities and their families. It provides support to more than 2000 children and young people with disabilities and special needs across SA. Through its broader work with families, Novita has a positive impact on approximately 10,000 people in the community and has been doing this work for more than 70 years.
Those who register for the 2012 West End Mighty River Run by June 30 will go into the draw to win a ‘money can’t buy’ experience comprising a food and beverage package for 80 people at the West End’s Tower Bar to watch the 2012 Aussie Rules Grand Final.
Crews are urged to register by going to www.novita.org.au/riverrun or by contacting Novita on (08) 8243 8229.
