Huge fundraiser for CareFlight Top End

23 May 2022

More than 120 participants challenged themselves in the colourful annual Kakadu Triathlon in Jabiru on Saturday, May 14, at what was one of the most successful days in the event’s history.
Coordinated by West Arnhem Regional Council, the event caters for junior and open competitors on a short-course triathlon and duathlon, and encourages people of all ages and abilities to challenge themselves and have fun.
This year’s event attracted a great number of competitors from Darwin and Jabiru and collectively, the event raised over $23,000 for CareFlight – one of the biggest fundraising totals to date!
In what was an added bonus to the year’s event, the coordinating committee also hosted a Colour Fun on the Friday night, supported by the Indigenous Marathon Project. This was supported by many organisations and attracted over 100 participants to the inaugural event.
A huge thank you to the race director Lucas Hayden, Gary Wall, Tim Ellison, Lucy Berk, Darwin Triathlon Club and Triathlon NT.
An extra special thank you to the CareFlight team and CareFlight patient Chris Garner, Emergency Services, and also a very big thank you to the Council pool staff and works crew. 
This event wouldn’t be possible without the generous sponsors and supporters: West Arnhem Regional Council, Blueridge Engineering, Intract, Veolia, Energy Resources of Australia, Intensity Sports, the Crocodile Hotel, Sodexo, Peter Keepence Photography, Puma, Red Lily Health Board and Caulfield Grammar.
A huge thank you to Anthony Jones who individually raised the most money for CareFlight!
