Casual Day Friday Vinnies Christmas Donation 14th December 2015.
Today Trudi Corbett presented Tony Spurling the Regional President of Vinnies with the gift vouchers purchased with the Casual Day Friday money raised by AASB Partners and Staff. Tony wanted to pass on his gratitude and to let you all know that these vouchers mean more than just a day at the movies or the pool etc. These vouchers provide children ‘inclusion’ when they return to school and the other kids are talking about what they did over the holidays. AASB wish you, and your families, a safe and Merry Christmas.
Leon Griffin Wins 2014 Ironman 70.3 Timberman event at Lake Winnapesaukee, Gilford, New Hampshire, 17th August 2014.
Leon burst onto the multisport circuit in 2006, claiming the ITU World Duathlon Championship in his debut Pro season. Since then, he's been chasing and claiming victories in all corners of the globe. Splitting time between his hometown of Bendigo, Australia, and the endurance mecca of Boulder, Colorado (USA), provides a platform to lay the foundation in his pursuit for ultimate glory - climbing atop the highest mountains in the world of Triathlon. With a mind and body capable, he's now piecing together the team necessary to reach the highest heights in a brutally tough sport...some say the toughest there is.
