Mr McVeigh, one of the organisers, commented: “The Lismore 5K event is more than just a run/walk – it is an opportunity to connect with primary schools, community organisations, local businesses and past students – it will be a fantastic family and community day out.”
Principal, Mrs Kane, added: “We are delighted with the outstanding support this community event has received from our local businesses, local schools and friends of Lismore already.
“We are truly looking forward to the day of our inaugural 5K run/walk which promises to be a fantastic day out for the whole family.
“We are once again encouraged but not surprised to see how valued and connected Lismore is within our local community – with so much support and well wishes, thank you to everyone who has helped in any way to organise and support this very special community event.”
