Dads on track to raise cash
Perth’s Brendon Barry and Greg Saunders will run the Cape to Cape track in a bid to raise much-needed money to help WA’s sick children.
The duo are part of Earn the Burn, a fitness and personal training group that raises money for Telethon.
Mr Saunders said he ran for seven hours last year as part of a fundraiser, covering 61km.
“I wanted to top that this year and have always wanted to do the Cape to Cape, so I thought why not it do in two days?” he said.
“Brendon heard about it and asked if I wanted company.
“We’re just trying to support a great cause, as I have two healthy children of my own and Brendon Barry has three.
The pair left Cape Leeuwin at 6am today and hope to reach Ellensbrook by 4pm.
They leave at 6am again tomorrow with the goal of reaching Cape Naturaliste by 3pm.
Their friend Brendan Hanlon will provide support.
“We are just a couple of dads doing what we can for the sick children of WA,” Mr Saunders said.
