16/10/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!

Hello to all of our RMC Members,

What a fantastic community week we have had at Run Move Connect.

Health and Wellbeing Expo

On Thursday, RMC participated in the Huon Valley Health and Wellbeing Expo. The expo showcased activities and services in the Huon Valley and was a fantastic opportunity for health providers to meet and exchange passionate ideas. It is incredible to meet so many talented health professionals in the Valley and if you are seeking advice on wellbeing services in our community, please reach out and we will point you in the right direction.


Hilltop Hike

CONGRATULATIONS to all of our awesome RMC Hilltop Hike participants who braved the weather for an awesome cause on Saturday. The event is held with the aim to improve the mental health and well-being of the Huon Valley with a new beneficiary chosen each year. This years event was raising money for our much loved Huon Valley PCYC to help fund and increase the capacity of the Youth Drop-in centre.

Run Move Connect should be so proud! We had over 44 entries for the day, we raised the most money out of all the teams and was awarded the first team to have 10 finishes which won us the team challenge! Along with winning first male, first female, first junior male and first junior female!

This will be an event that RMC will build towards each year and are already looking forward to the 2024 event.



A massive congratulations goes to Karen Weger for completing her first marathon in one of Australia's biggest marathon festivals, Melbourne! The Marathon is a lot more than the race itself, the journey to prepare yourself in the 16 weeks leading into the event can be the biggest challenge of all. Karen's preparation has been nothing short of incredible and she should be so proud on what was a fantastic effort she executed on Sunday

It was roughly 2 years ago Karen joined Brad for Reba Sears first ever Social Saturday, to think she ran roughly the same pace for the marathon as she did for that Saturday 2 years ago goes to show the growth and progress Karen has made.

Well done Karen, you are an inspiration and we are all SO PROUD OF YOU!
