The Beerwah Charity Sports Committee organised the first Charity Sports in 1971, in support of the Queensland Cancer Fund, and this year marks the 43rd sports day. Over the years this annual event has achieved iconic local status as a project which involves the whole community. Most local businesses provide sponsorships, while community groups and individuals assist with the overall organisation, and also provide the volunteer workforce on the day.
The main focus of the function each year is an extensive program of horse sports, featuring over 200 events. There are also athletics and novelties, arts and craft displays and stalls, vintage vehicles on display, photography competition and musical entertainment in the afternoon as well as a Car & Ute ‘Show & Shine’ competition, Australia Zoo Croc Cruiser and a special kids’ entertainment tent including face painting.
This year will see a return of the Strongmen. They will be joined by the Strongwomen. This part of the program is being organised by Alana Curnow. We are looking forward to some exciting demonstrations of strength. There has been a request for a tractor or truck for pulling as another of test of strength.
- All this for just $2.00.
- All for Cancer Council Queensland.
There should be scarecrows popping up around the district from now on. No! No! You aren’t seeing things. These are part of the competition organised by Janelle Steensen with great gusto and enthusiasm.
The Beerwah Charity Sports Committee is proud to support the efforts of Cancer Council Queensland in its commitment to providing all Queenslanders with the best possible prospects of preventing, detecting, effectively treating and surviving a cancer diagnosis through our local fund-raising project.
Perhaps you can include some of this additional info.
There is quite good Photography Competition we are running as well. The winners of the competition will be on display at the sportsground.
