The Key Employment-sponsored Coffs Harbour Running Festival saw over 1600 runners take to the Coffs Creek Walkway course over Father’s Day weekend.
Key Operations Manager Mike Swarbrick and his young family have taken part for the last few years.
“Since the kids have been born we’ve been doing it,” Mike said. “It’s a bit of a father’s day tradition now, which is good.”
Key Employment is the gold sponsor of the 21.1km half marathon and sponsored over 120 runners across the four distances to support health and wellbeing and promote the value of exercise.
The festival raised funds for the following charities:
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“It’s a great place to be to make great friendships and get along with everyone. They have a good laugh and make it fun. The teachers are chilled and not as strict. They treat us with respect and like adults.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Key Employment has helped me out a lot. I’m not as shy now and Key has helped me get a job and I’m more confident.”
