WHEELS on water is the name of the game for Sailability and, thanks to funds raised by the Nail Can Hill Run, the sailing club for people with a disability hopes to get more people on the water.
Money raised from the run will be used to build ramps to provide wheelchair access to sail boats and the yacht club.
Albury-Wodonga Ya-cht Club commodore Stuart Richardson said he appreciated the community support.
“We’re a fairly unique organisation, so being able to upgrade facilities we have for the disabled as a part of the long-term plan to upgrade the club is very important to us,” he said.
“Rotary has been very supportive of what we’re doing out, so to have the community come out and support us by entering the run is really encouraging.”
The Rotary-organised event will also help buy musical instruments and place them in the playground at the Wewak Street School, a cycling network to be constructed by Parklands Albury-Wodonga, and life-saving equipment for the new Albury-Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre.
The 11.3-km race, on May 3, starts on Centaur Road, Lavington and finishes in West Albury’s Bonnie Doon Park.
