News - 2019/2020
Last Saturday (8th Feb 2020) we held our annual Relaython event, to help raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
This is an annual fun day event held by our Centre to create awareness about and raise funds for this wonderful cause.
Since the Victorian Little Athletics Association was formed in the late 1960’s, the RCHGFA has been an annual calendar event. LAVic has collectively raised over $1m from fundraising events, throughout the state Centres.
The purpose of the Relaython is to have a fun day for all, have one relay baton make its way around the track non-stop and the goal is to run as many laps as possible in the best possible timeframe.
