A non-profit organisation for GLBT youth will receive some extra help this year thanks to the enthusiastic fundraising efforts of the Twenty10 City to Surf team.
The twelve-member group hopes to raise $6000 for Twenty10 from money donated by people supporting their participation in the City to Surf fun run on August 9.
By sponsoring us, people will be directly supporting Twenty10 to provide services to the people who need them. Twenty10 does great work in the community, providing opportunities and services to young GLBT people and their families, team member Gareth Halloran said.
The team grew out of a network of friends, including some Twenty10 volunteers, but more people are welcome to join the group in their debut appearance this year.
People are encouraged to join the team if they’d like to help us achieve our target and they can choose to walk or run the City to Surf, Halloran said. It makes sense to support our community.
Twenty10’s managing director, Rebecca Reynolds, said the money raised will directly support the organisation’s drop-in program, which provides young people with a safe and warm place to go in winter.
The runners are acting as positive role models for the young people who access our services, she said.
