Nepean Triathlon contributes to Rural Fire Service

With the recent devastating fires in the Blue Mountains, The Gulf Western Oil Nepean triathlon decided to make the Rural Fire Service the race charity for 2013.

The race itself donated $7,623, the race winner, Olympian Emma Moffatt generously donated $2,000 from her prize money and Panther Cycles owner, David Richardson organised a raffle with prizes from the race sponsors that raised a further $4,377 making a total donation of $14,000 to the RFS from the race. 

Thank you to all who supported the RFS over the weekend.
