Feel the burn to help sick invite

REVESBY resident and special needs teacher Shani Craven, along with St Christopher’s Primary School Panania secretary Linda Mudaliar, will be tying up their running shoes for this year’s Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn on May 26.

Their efforts are in support of their former student, Cormac Ryan, who was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, and takes part in the event’s Para Burn for wheelchair athletes.
This year will be Shani’s fourth time taking part in the annual event and Linda’s third time, in the Balmoral ‘No Burn’ Walk Race category, which raises money for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to purchase essential, and often life-saving medical equipment, to more than 400 hospitals and health services across Australia.
“As walkers in the ‘No Burn’ category, we are exhausted after the 420m climb, so to watch adults complete the climb in their wheelchairs is truly inspirational,” Shani said.
Residents are invited to register for the Burn and help hospitals to help the sick.
Simply run, walk, crawl or scale obstacles in more than 20 different race categories, with something for everyone and all levels of fitness – even the family pet!
For those that like to really “feel the burn”, the high intensity obstacle challenge ‘Hill of Hurt’ will return for its fifth year.
The annual Sydney event was created by Humpty Dumpty Foundation Ambassador and Wallaby legend, Phil Kearns AM, 19 years ago and in 2018, raised more than $2.7 million.
