ROUNDUP and RACE TIMES

More highlights from a memorable day.....

 

Warming up with Khuram and Kamran Nasir of West End Boxing Gym

If the overwhelmingly complimentary feedback from many of the 600 finishers and supporters is anything to go by, then CresWalk2010 must rank along with the most enjoyable and professionally organized community events:

"My family and I had a wonderful day. Perfect weather, beautiful venue, yummy food and great atmosphere. We look forward to CresWalk 2011!", said a mother of three.

 

"Thanks for a great day, well done and congratulations to the whole Crescents. Team on another fantastic CresWalk. So wonderful to see the "young ones" contribute so much, a great model." Garry Page, Executive Director, MAQ
 

"I would just like to say Jazaakallah for organising this great event. Alhumdulilaah it was very enjoyable, without a doubt the day was successful. May Allah (swt) reward you all abundantly for all your efforts inshallah" was the response of the Kuraby Imam who completed the 5km in good time.
 

Another wrote in to say: "Congratulations to the team on yet another, even more successful CresWalk. Nice touch with the 9 am start."

 

Year 1 Nawaf Alamri of the Australian International Islamic College decided a picture was worth a thousand words.......

 

 

 

 

 

"............this was undoubtedly one of the best organised community events I have attended in years. Your impeccable organisation meant nothing was left to chance. Participants knew exactly what the program was, every little detail had been thought of and attended to, there were no queues when queues can be the backbreaker for these events and the level of participation was a signal testimony to your associations effectiveness in generating social harmony. Old and young, disabled and fit, Muslim, Christian, atheist, families and singles all were there participating. Please pass on to your colleagues my thanks and congratulations and please note my early bird registration for CresWalk 2011," wrote Ian Muil, Executive Manager of ECCQ

 

"Thanks again for Sunday, it was fun and really good to be a part of something that promoted Fun, Fitness and Family!", said Chanda.

 

"...........we had a good day out. Crescents has outdone themselves once again", wrote Ms P.

 

Wheelchair bound, Antoni Tsaputra (pictured left) wrote:

 

Again my life experiences in Australia have been enriched. It was a worthy opportunity to befriend and mingle with the Australian community as well as to strengthen silahturrahim with Muslim brothers and sisters in Queensland Australia. It will go down as one of the unforgettable moments to share with friends and relatives back in Indonesia when I return home upon the completion of my study as an AusAID scholar. Today I had my first walk (race) all my life in one of the most celebrated local community events in Brisbane, CresWalk2010.

...........

Kind hearted and sincere smiles were thrown to me every time I met with other participants and said salam to each other. It really was a happy day for everyone. We shared happiness with each other regardless of different ethnics and cultures.

...........
This event has strengthened the bond of silahturrahim amongst Muslims and has shown that Muslim people are able to contribute a lot to social activities in Australia. It is a great pride and honour for me to participate in this annual event. Insha Allah I will join it again next year.
