Each year many Queenslanders challenge themselves to run in the Bridge to Brisbane, however for Variety’s team ‘Caped Crusaders’ this iconic event is about much more than just the finish line. In the lead up to the event, the Variety Caped Crusaders work hard to raise vital funds for kids in need. In fact, this year they raised an incredible $1670 in total through all their efforts.

These funds will go towards helping kids like Brydi. Brydi was born paraplegic due to a tumour that was crushing her spinal cord. Needing to get around using a wheelchair has never stopped her or her big dreams of becoming Paralympian. In 2018, she received a Variety Heart Scholarship which allowed her pursue this dream by making training several times a week and competing in triathlons possible.

It didn’t matter how long it took the Variety Caped Crusaders to reach the finish line. All abilities and fitness levels were encouraged to take part. Some ran, some walked, a few tackled the major 10km event and others opted for the 4.5km route. The purpose was all about raising funds to make an impact on the lives of kids who are sick, disadvantaged or living with a disability.

Joining the Variety Caped Crusaders team is a great way to get fit, have fun and fundraise for a great cause. Keep an eye out for when registrations open for Bridge to Brisbane 2023!
