ENTER THE DRAGON FOR A TRIFECTA OF GOOD CAUSES

04-10-2019

The St.George Bank Happy Dragon made a surprise and rather athletic appearance in Parramatta Park last month as part of the Coleman Greig Challenge. Inside the suit was none other than regular Industry Update contributor Matthew Kelly, Head of Manufacturing & Wholesale at St.George Bank.

The Coleman Greig Challenge is an annual event that raises funds for three very deserving children’s charities: St Gabriel’s School, the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, and the Westmead Hospital Foundation.

Participants have a choice of running, cycling and walking events from which to gather sponsorship. And while Kelly and the St.George team did choose the “light duty” 2.5km walk, the addition of the dragon suit certainly added to the calorific value of the exercise!

And while the final figures have not yet been published, the event is well on the way to reaching its target of $250,000 and beating 2018’s record haul of $231,000.

The St.George team were delighted to be named Highest Corporate Fundraiser for raising more than $23,000 to date. And the Highest Individual Fundraiser was the Happy Dragon himself, Matthew Kelly.
