Our Kids challenge

IF YOU can run, swim and push a big tyre across an oval, you and your mates should sign up for this year's Samson Fitness Challenge to support Our Kids.

Now in its third year, this year's Samson Challenge is raising funds for a humidicrib for the Lismore Base Hospital Special Care Nursery.

"The event is based on Mortimer Oval and involves competitors running through the streets of Lismore down to the Memorial Baths for the swim leg, then a run back to the oval where competitors will complete the last two fitness legs," Our Kids fundraising co-ordinator Rebekka Battista said.

You need to have four people on a team and each team member must finish each leg before the team can move on to the next stage.

"There are many people in Lismore who enjoy keeping fit and this event is a way to put your body to the test while at the same time, help support local children at Lismore Base Hospital," Rebekka said.

The registration fee is $320 per team and registration closes on February 24. For more details on the course and to register phone Our Kids on 6620 2705 or go to www.lismoresamson.com.
