Travel Counsellors Sprint to the Finish Line

October 16, 2013 Mobile travel consulting No Comments Email Email

Travel Counsellors’, their families and head office staff gave up their Sunday morning sleep-in for a very worthwhile cause on Sunday 13 October, by competing in various events in the Melbourne Marathon in support of a selection of charities.

DSC_0411It was all smiles at the finish line for Matt Cox, IT Manager at TC head office in Melbourne, who ran the full marathon in just over 5 hours and although soaked from the rain, was happy to have made it! The day’s accolades were certainly saved for Matt who previously competed in the Melbourne ½ Marathon on behalf of Travel Counsellors and who was the key organizer of getting the team together.

Despite the wintery conditions, there was a great contingent of support from other Travel Counsellors who also competed, Travel Counsellor Debby Hunter’s family joined head office Marketing Executive Rebecca Wilson on the 10km run.  A number of Travel Counsellors from throughout Victoria and their families turned up in force alongside General Manager Tracy Parkinson to take on the 5.7 run and 3km walk. Anabela Costa from the accounts department and all her family competed in the 5.7km run making it a full family affair and a great family day out.

“The sense of pride for the short term pain and the long term gain of raising money for such a great charity is just amazing” beams Matt Cox after catching his breath from the sprint to the finish line.

“We couldn’t be more proud of our Travel Counsellors and our fantastic head office support team, we are all one big family and day’s like this just prove that we are united in whatever we set our minds to, and raising money for such a great cause in the process just makes it a very special day.  We will definitely be back even bigger and better next year!” comments Travel Counsellors Australia General Manager, Tracy Parkinson.  Other head office staff, as well as TC family members were at the finish line to cheer on the competitors who then enjoyed a BBQ lunch & drinks together to end a very successful day.
