Calibar - Pre Race Launch Party

A husband of one of the chicks, and our very dear friend, John Simmonds, entered the inaugural Melbourne Ironman Event held on 25th March 2012. The race is made up of 3.8 km swim, a 180km ride and a 42.2 km run (which is a full marathon!) a grueling 226 kilometre mentally and physically tough event for which he trained 8 months. John dedicated his huge effort to Chicks for Charity Foundation and we had so much support for  this event at the Pre-race fun and fundraising night at Calibar in Scoresby. All proceeds from this event went to Chicks for Charity Foundation.
