Something more important than coming first was the focus of the Shoalhaven Little Athletics Club’s Tuesday evening meeting at Ron Brown Oval.
A fundraising event, along with the regular Tuesday competition, was held during the evening.
A respected supporter of the club was recently diagnosed with cancer and the athletic community wanted to do something to help.
Funds raised at the event will help the family in their time of need.
Lots of crazy colourful hair flowed and bright socks flashed at the event.
A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family and people can go to www.gofundme.com/4yumy40 to make a donation.
The Shoalhaven Little Athletics Club has a long and proud history of supporting important causes.
The club regularly hosts ‘pink’ nights and the competitors and committee members dress up in pink and collect money to support people facing cancer.
