Australia: Clayton Utz Treadmill-A-Thon challenge raises over $10,000 for Australia's Rio Paralympic Team
Last Updated: 4 July 2016

Sydney, 30 June 2016: Two Clayton Utz teams recently competed to clock up the most kilometres in a Treadmill-A-Thon challenge that raised over $10,000 for the 2016 Rio Australian Paralympic Team.

Chief Executive Partner Rob Cutler and Competition National Practice Group Leader Kirsten Webb led two teams of Clayton Utz employees who took turns walking as far as they could on treadmills in half an hour for the fundraising challenge - with Rob's team declared the winner.

The money raised, which includes a $5,000 grant from the Clayton Utz Foundation, will go towards the cost of sending Australia's Paralympians to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in September.

Clayton Utz was joined at the fundraiser by Paralympic swimmer and gold medallist Prue Watt and Australian Paralympic Committee Fundraising Manager Rob Lawrenson.

Rob said the APC and the Paralympic Team were delighted to have Clayton Utz' support. "On behalf of all the athletes heading to Rio 2016 I'd like to thank Clayton Utz for this fantastic donation," said Rob. "The money you have raised through the Treadmill-A-Thon takes us one step closer to achieving the $7 million we need to send the Australian Paralympic Team to the Rio Games. I hope you will watch the Games with pride knowing you helped to get our athletes there."
