First RunWest a huge success
2 April 2019
The inaugural RunWest festival at the Parklands saw thousands of people of all ages and abilities walk, jog and run the 4km or 12km course. As well as promoting healthy lifestyles, RunWest celebrated the lively Western Sydney community and its many cultures.
Suellen Fitzgerald, Executive Director of Western Sydney Parklands Trust, said she was proud to be a part of the event, which showcased the Parklands and surrounds and gave participants a sneak preview of the Sydney Zoo site, which will be opening later in 2019.
RunWest was hosted by Athletics Australia and Athletics NSW, in partnership with West HQ and NSW Government. Funds were raised for CanToo, Better Foundation, Neuroblastoma Australia, Ronald McDonald House, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, the John Maclean Foundation and PCYC NSW.
