30/10/2023 - Weekly newsletter for Run Move Connect members!


Hello to all of our RMC Members,


Love is in the air! This week we send our best wishes to Mr and Misses Huon Valley AKA Hannah Squires and Jordan Lovell, who will be celebrating their wedding day this Saturday! I think I can speak on behalf of the RMC community to wish you both all the best for what is going to be an amazing day.


All the regular segments are below with some important ones regarding our Christmas party and Social Saturdays! We look forward to seeing you all for another great week ahead.

 

Public Holiday Recap

Thankyou to all of of our members who joined us for our two public holiday sessions held last week. They were a huge hit and will be something RMC will continue to aim to provide moving forward. Seeing 50+ members come together for a massive Pilates session was unbelievable and we had a lot of fun in the afternoon for our running session filled with games and a modified session.

Social Saturday



A huge thankyou goes to Dover Funrun event organiser Gemma Skinner for joining us on Saturday morning. It was awesome to hear all about the event and the story about why The Dover Funrun started. The events sole purpose is to raise money for the Hobart Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. We love events that support community and gives a reason to run more then ourselves!


*Lost Hoodie*

Alex has lost her medium hoodie (labelled AS) after this weeks Social Saturday. Check your hoodies and reach out if you may have Alex's by mistake.



**Social Saturday parking**

As our group grows in size we thought it would be time to send out a friendly reminder about parking on a Saturday morning at Reba Sear. We need to consider and respect our neighbours on Walton St to not congest that tight area.

Attached is a photo with recommended parking areas. We would appreciate our members to try and park in the red areas (Reba carpark, on the main road or up at the carwash only 150m from Reba Sear). If we could aim to avoid the blue area when possible that would be much appreciated. Please aim to arrive 7:50-7:55am to ensure we can get started by 8am :)

 

PCYC Huon Valley and RMC Join Forces


PCYC and RMC are joining forces together with support of the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to provide youth, between 14-20 years of age, a free 20 week all-access membership. This is a fantastic opportunity for youth that are finishing winter sport and looking for an activity to participate in through the summer period, an inactive adolescent who is wanting to engage within their community in a healthy and positive manner or simply a teenager who wants to exercise along side their parent or friend.

This running event is a fundraiser! All profits will go the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Royal Hobart Hospital. You can also donate to PICU during the registration or on the day.
