WELL DONE TEAM! 

Seven years in and still going strong, Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club staff members turned out in force to complete in the 2015 Sun Herald Summer Starter 10km fundraiser. 34 staff members competed for Team Ryde-Eastwood, which finished ninth overall in the 10km teams, and a mighty THIRD in the corporate team challenge!

Adam Angelini was first over the line for the team in a whirlwind time of 44.54 seconds. Second went to Angelo Emirian who clocked up an excellent time of 53.31 seconds. We are also very proud to report that the Club raised $3,600 for the Children’s Medical Research Institute.

Thank you Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club team members for your support!  Every year more and more of our staff members are getting behind this event, and thanks to The Fitness Edge’s support with training and fitness we expect 2016 to be bigger and better than ever.

 



LEAGUES CLUB - 18th YEAR SUPPORTING GENES FOR JEANS DAY
Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club began supporting Genes for Jeans Day way back in 1997. This year club staff kept up its charitable tradition by donating for Genes for Jeans Day Sydney 2015.

“We had another great turnout in denim," says Human Resources Manager Joanne Luke. “Everywhere I looked in the club I saw staff wearing their jeans and committing to such a worthy cause. And the more money they donated, the more we as a club were able to contribute, as the Board of Directors match any money raised by staff.”

Every year since 1997, the team’s efforts have raised thousands of dollars to support programmes for The Children's Medical Research Institute to prevent leukemia, muscular dystrophy, genetic defects and many other disorders.

Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club champions the true spirit of the Club Movement with an ongoing dedication to serve its community.
