Sunday, 26 May 2013, 10am, Orleigh Park, WEST END

 

 

The Crescent Wealth CresWalk2013 "the best CresWalk ever!"

 

 

The Brisbane sun shone gloriously over Orleigh Park as it heralded the 10th anniversary of the Crescents of Brisbane's annual Fun Run and Walk.

 

With well over 600 registrations, the starting line was bristling with eager boys, girls, young and no-so-young men and women and babies-in-prams waiting for the traditional horn that would set them off on a run, jog, walk and a stroll along our Brisbane river and the leafy Riverside Drive.

 

Orleigh Park was a sea of CresWalk t-shirts and caps as the CresWalkers took off on their 2.5km and 5km routes and then returning to either take part in activities that included a giant slide, rock-climbing and outdoor games or just electing to make the most of the sunny day relaxing over a delicious lunch prepared by the Crescents of Brisbane Team.

 

What was once a somewhat parochial event has become a community celebration that increasingly reflects the diversity of Australia's population with participants from many different Muslim and non-Muslim ethnic and cultural groups supporting the occasion.

 

At the formal presentations, Dr Mohamad Abdalla was awarded the 2013 Hajee Ebrahim Patel/Crescents of Brisbane Special Achievement Award for his long-standing contribution and service to the community.

 

Being the 10th year of CresWalk, it was also an occasion to recognize the contributions of the founding and past members of Crescents of Brisbane and CresWalk as well as those who have remained a part of the team from its inception.

 

A congratulatory message from the Prime Minister of Australia, Julie Gillard was read out to the participants before the much awaited random prizes were drawn.

 

During the course of the week the Crescents of Brisbane Team received many other messages of congratulations and appreciation, and some of them can be read here.

 

By all accounts this year's effort was, as more than one seasoned participant effused:

The best CresWalk ever!
