Dear Students, Parents, Staff and the wider TAS Family,
As many of you are aware, the City2Surf is not only the most prominent event of the TAS Triple Crown, it is also a significant fundraiser within our community. Given the current COVID climate, the City2Surf is unlikely to go ahead in 2021. As a result, the ‘TAS 4hr’ will be held on Saturday 14 August at TAS. I am grateful to Dr Horton for her wonderful support of this event.
Once again we will run for the ‘Guns out for Tombsy’ Foundation, in recognition of TAS OA (1985) Richard Tombs who suffered a serious spinal injury and is still going through rehabilitation. We will also run for the late Anya Zuber (big sister of Alexander, current Year 11) and the late Peta Kerr (little sister of Lettie, current Year 11). The charity is ‘Anya’s Wish’ (funding research into children’s cancer) and I cannot think of anything more appropriate than supporting those in our immediate community.
I encourage every student, parent, staff member, Old Armidalian and TAS friend to join in for what will be a memorable Saturday evening, challenging yourself whilst supporting a most important cause.
We are grateful that the current NSW COVID guidelines allow for this to proceed as a community participation event (at the time of publication).
You can register using the link on the left menu, where you will also find a link to Frequently Asked Questions for the event. If there is anything else you wish to know, please email me at [email protected].
Expressions of Interest close on Friday 6 August.
