Today would be interesting. Fitness Coach Lea had organized a fundraiser with two groups. The first was her Fit Chicks Running team and the second was a team of the employees of Titanwall Inc, a company where she is personal trainer to the workers. I arrived at the Titanwall operations at 7.30am and Marco showed me into the building. There was a lot of construction going on, but my first surprise was to see a full gym, set up at the end of the building. I headed out for a few laps and at 9.00am came back and met Lea. Her group was ready and we ran 1km loops until 11am. I chatted to the group over coffee and a muffin. As we talked the rains started and continued the rest of the day. The next couple of hours I was on my own but at 1.00pm I met the employees of Titanwall Inc.

Titanwall make Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) and today was their 5 year anniversary. Owner Mark was away but Lea told that he was an Olympic sailor and had brought many inovative ideas to the business. The employees had an in-house chef (Chris), personal trainer (Lea) and they've just planted a vegetable garden. Twelve employees joined me and we started on the last 12km of my marathon. Chef Chris told me he had been working at Titanwall for 4 years and had enjoyed every minute. He stuck with me to the end and completed 20km. Lea had left me with an envelope with the cash and cheques in it. The final tally, $1,535, to Right To Play. Many thanks.
