City2Surf 2016

Posted by Kylie Flament on 15 August 2016

Harley would have been incredibly proud of his family and friends this weekend as they walked or ran the City2Surf along with over 80,000 others, and raised a huge $43,000 to support the Heart Centre for Children.  Sadly Harley passed away earlier this year, but his Mum Danielle wanted to do something to help other kids with heart disease, so she channelled her energy into fundraising.  Here are some photos of the Harley is My Heart Hero (Heart Centre for Children) team from yesterday's 14km race:
