MEDIA RELEASE: 2018 Charity Partner

Over 300 runners will participate in Hobart’s boutique fun run on December 30th 2018 - the Race to the Taste.

The event is organized by the OVA Southern Saints Athletics Club and features a picturesque 3km or 6km run or walk.

Runners start at the Domain Athletics Centre and finish at the doorstep of the Taste of Tasmania festival.

Along with encouraging health and wellbeing through physical activity, the Race to the Taste is proud to again partner with a local Tasmanian charity – Lend a Hand to Hugo.  

A portion of every entry will be donated to the charity, which was started by then 14-year-old Luke Williams for his nephew Hugo.

Lend a Hand to Hugo raises funds and awareness to improve the lives of children living with autism spectrum disorder.

“Being a Tasmanian based charity, we really value our work engaging with the Tasmanian community, including events like the Race to the Taste”, Williams said.

“The Race presents a fantastic opportunity for us, particularly given our heavy involvement in sport and providing opportunities to people with a disability”.

Funds raised from the event will be utilized to further enhance some of the charity’s sporting programs.

“These are great programs that allow for people of all abilities to socialize and strengthen their sporting ambitions into the future.”

Event director Brendan Hanigan said it’s great that an initiative from the event committee in supporting a smaller, local charity is able to continue.

“Both the run and Lend a Hand to Hugo are small organisations that are rooted in the Tasmanian community.”

“It’s a great partnership formed through a direct link between beneficiaries of the charity and members of the OVA Southern Saints club.”

This year the Race is supported by primary partner Spectran Group along with event partners Aldanmark Consulting Engineers, Duggans and Domin8 Designs.
