Team Servants – Run Melbourne 2014


Team Servants ’14 will be a significant presence at the The Age’s Run Melbourne event on July 27th 2014. Details here:

This will be our major fundraiser for 2014. We invite everyone to put on their running shoes and participate in either the 5km/10km or half marathon distances. Please ask friends and colleagues to join you in representing Team Servants ’14 and raising funds for on-going work of Servants as we look to continue housing individuals at risk of homelessness.
