Dr Anthony Seymour from Seymour Dental has run, with friends, to raise money for his son’s special school Wairoa, over the past 7 years. Anthony’s son, James , has autism. He has been at the school since 2007. In past years we have run the Harbour Bridge run (9km), the Bay Run (7km). This year we will do the Harbour Bridge 9km Fun Run on Sunday 20/9/2015. This year he will be running with his nurse Roni. Thanks for helping me over the line again! Dave, a friend who ran last year, will do the 14km City to Surf on Sunday 9/8/2015. Thanks again Dave.
