The 2016 Team – Team & Sponsors


Wheellie Mad Runners

It’s been another unbelievable year of fundraising for our newly named Wheellie Mad Runners, raising $63 000. We took out the award for highest charity fundraiser!

We must say a MASSIVE thank you to our major sponsors – Howe’s Farming & NQEA who continue to offer us support every year. We wouldn’t be able to run this without these two amazing companies and appreciate their support more than words can express.

We also had a large number of local companies Gold Sponsoring us this year – so please support them and show your thanks when you can! The money we raised ensures we can continue to support our local families with therapies, rebates, specialised equipment and travel costs.

This year we ran a Fantastic team of 5 women & a mixed team of 10 Crazy runners. I am truly so grateful to you all for being a part of the fun, for joining our team and for your support reaching & exceeding our fundraising goal. Well done to the ladies team who took out 1st Place in the women’s category… an amazing achievement considering the unfortunate injury to one runner on day one!

This year I decided my 6th year would be a ‘rest’ year & I would join the amazing support crew who ensure that our runners are well looked after each day. It was an experience I feel everyone should endure at least once & it definitely made me appreciate just how much this crew does to really make the weekend wonderful! (By the way…we have the best support crew around).

Thank you, thank you support crew for all your massaging, putting up tents, organising gear, cooking, cleaning, packing up, looking after the kiddies, cheering and enjoying the craziness of the weekend!

Hope to see you all again next year joining in on the Wheellie Mad craziness of the Great Wheelbarrow Race 2017.
