A Spring in every CresWalk step!



Last Sunday, on a perfect Spring Brisbane morning over 400 men, women, boys and girls of every conceivable shape, size, age and fitness level took part in CresWalk2011 at Orleigh Park, West End.


The 8th annual Fun Run, the flagship of Crescents of Brisbane, was another flawlessly and professionally organized event by the CresWalk Team in which everybody was able to participate in some form or the other, whether by running or walking for a PB, strolling along the Brisbane River with family and friends or simply enjoying the post run brunch in the park put on by the Team.


All finishers were presented with a CresWalk2011 commemorative mug and there were a host of random draw prizes that included a brand new Kindle and a $250 Visa cash card.


With the monies raised at Crescafe at Eidfest last month and the $5 from each CresWalk entry fee Crescents of Brisbane raised $5 000 for the the Horn of Africa Famine Appeal which was handed to Muslim Aid Australia during the presentations.


The Haje Ebrahim Patel/Crescents of Brisbane Special Achievement Award for 2011 was presented to Mr. Farouk Adam by president of Crescents of Brisbane, Mustafa Ally who spoke of Mr. Adam's long and generous involvement with the community.


Crescents of Brisbane thanks Mohammed and Mairoon Ally of Nandos Mt Gravatt for their sponsorship of, and wholehearted participation, in this year's CresWalk as well the Queensland Government and Multicultural Affairs Queensland and the many sponsors of the random draw prizes and other contributors who made it such a memorable event for so many.
