Support the Firies
With spring in the air, daylight savings having now commenced and more warmer days ahead, we all seem to have a little more motivation to get outdoors and keep fit.

The Research and Kangaroo Ground Country Fire Authority (CFA) hold an annual fun run. In addition to raising funds to help provide this community service, the run is a great community event and a way for others to get fit and show their support to these local volunteers who protect the community.
