New logo puts more fun into run

THE Darrel Chapman Fun Run has a new look.

The event's logo has been re-designed by Southern Cross University students ahead of the 17th annual Darrel Chapman Fun Run, to be held at the university on Sunday, May 20.

"When we first saw the logo we took it upon ourselves to realise it really needed re-designing," Darrel Chapman Fun Run promotions co-ordinator and Southern Cross University student Nicholas Hunt said.

"What we wanted to go for was something that would last throughout the years.

"The new logo itself represents community spirit and goodwill towards a common goal."

Southern Cross University Exercise Science and Sport Management students have organised the fun run in collaboration with local charity, Our Kids.

The two groups hope to raise $10,000 for an electrocardiogram machine which would be used in the Children's Ward at Lismore Base Hospital.

Darrel Chapman was a renowned academic and sporting legend who played rugby league for South Sydney and Australia.

He was the North Coast Academy of Sport's founding chairman and established the Human Movement Science and Sport Management degree at Southern Cross University. Mr Chapman died after a battle with cancer in 1992.

Fun run registration forms are available from dcfr.scu.edu.au and UniLife at Southern Cross University.

Entry costs $10 before May 20 or $15 on the day.
