The 17 year old will run 140 kms from Mareeba to Chillagoe in May to support Rosies, an aid organization providing unconditional support and friendship to those in the local community. Joshua Priestly said he is looking forward to the challenge. “My first goal is to make it (to Chillagoe) and the second is to fundraise for Rosies,” he said.
“I wanted to fundraise for a local charity within our community.”
This will be, Josh’s third race, having competed twice in the schools team. “The wheelbarrow race is really great, especially doing it as a school team. It’s a fun weekend,” he said.
“Doing it solo will be a challenge but I am sure it will still be fun.”
