Curtin students and staff once again showed their generosity and willingness to help a good cause, by turning out en masse for the 2009 Freeway Bike Hike for Asthma recently.
123 people signed on to join the Curtin team this year, in doing so beating WA’s four other universities for back-to-back Tertiary Sports WA Participation Challenge Cups in the event.
Curtin has now taken out the title in the last four Cup events in a row, with the next being the Bridges Fun Run on Sunday, April 5. Curtin Recreation Services’ Rodney Glossop urged everyone to take part in the ten or five kilometre event.
‘Obviously it raises money for charity, but it’s just a great Curtin community event,’ he said.
‘Staff, students and their families all together after the event and have a chat, you meet people from work with similar interests.’
To register for the Bridges Fun Run, head down to the Curtin Squash Centre (Building 108) or register online on the West Australian Marathon Club website.
