With Melbourne in the grips of a second wave of coronavirus, it’s been encouraging to see the positivity coming from our affiliated clubs who are working to support their members and keep them connected to triathlon.
Greensborough Triathlon Club is one such club who recently hosted a Winter Zoom Party for all its past and current club members.
The theme of the evening was triathlon attire meets smart casual dress for those attending. Members and coaches appeared online in triathlon suits with a blazer, while others donned their cycle jersey with a tie and everything in-between.
There was an array of activities on offer for those who attended, including triathlon trivia, a home scavenger hunt and a silent auction which raised $1,000 for front-line health care workers within Greensborough Triathlon Club’s community.
The club has a large contingent of front-line health care workers, especially nurses, paramedics and firefighters. The money raised will buy a gift voucher for each of these highly valued club members who are working huge hours and in very challenging conditions on the front line each day.
This gesture is just a small token of the club’s appreciation for everything these workers are doing for their state at the moment.
The night was a fun way for everyone in the Greensborough Triathlon Club community to stay connected, have a laugh and get dressed up!
The Greensborough Triathlon Club is invested in supporting their triathlon community by doing things together as a team.
This event is a nice reminder that clubs who engage with their community remain strong and that a small idea can have a significant impact.
