Hi Ladies, Here is a note I received from Deirdre Thomas, Executive Director at the Lighthouse For Grieving Children:

Hi Niki

As you have probably heard the Mercedes-Benz 10K is cancelled again for this year. The Lighthouse for Grieving Children was the sole charity partners so we had to scramble last year to pull off our own event! Happily we had blue skies, over 650 runners and it was a fun and enjoyable day out with amazing support from Niks Chicks both running and volunteering at the event.

This years event is also at the scenic Lions Valley Park on Saturday, June 2nd. The 5K trail run is chip timed and there will be cool medals for all runners and t-shirts for the first 500 registrants. The food will be great – freshly cooked bacon or sausage on a bun followed by Starbucks coffee and treats. It’s probably the only run where you will put on weight!!

You have very kindly in the past posted information to your FB page and on your website and wondered if you can help promote the event again this year. I’ve outlined some copy below but feel free to edit.

Spring is nearly here! Join us for the Run 4 Lighthouse on Saturday, June 2nd at the scenic Lions Valley Park. 5K chip timed trail run, along with 1K and 100m dash options for younger kids, followed by delicious food, entertainment and music. Medals for all 5K runners, great t-shirts for the first 500 registrants and prizes for winners! So gather your friends and family and join us to help support the Lighthouse – helping grieving children and their families in our community since 1999. Register today at . Any questions? Just email

Thanks in advance and hope you will join us.

Warm regards,

Deirdre Thomas

Executive Director
