“What an amazing event which exceeded all of our expectations. Our first annual 5K Fun Run was a complete success thanks to KP Events who organised this event for us. A special thank you also to our wonderful sponsors, DBMAA and supporters, Citrus Research, M6Toll and Banabay, all of the volunteers and of course all of our wonderful participants. I hope everyone who took part enjoyed it as much we did and thank you for helping us to achieve our goal in creating our beautiful Children’s Memorial Garden (Violet’s Garden)” Kerry Mornington.
