Tassal Ten Fun Run

Tassal Ten Fun Run

Tasmania's most scenic Run/Walk, theinaugural “Tassal Ten” Fun Run for Dover, to be held on Sunday December 15th along with “Annabelle’s Run”- 2 km just for the young ones.

The running events will be followed closely by Dover & South Action Group‘s Christmas Parade and party- so let’s make a great community day of it!

The Tassal Ten Fun Run was born out of a long-standing desire to give back to the community, in thanks for the wonderful support for the Skinner family in their time of need. Little Annabelle was just 17 months old when she was involved in a freak accident resulting in a horrific head injury. Annabelle and her family spent anxious weeks by her side in Hobart’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit – with expert care and attention Annabelle made a full recovery and is now a happy healthy 5 year old. At the time of her injury, Annabelle’s parents Gemma and John became very aware of the pressures that the Hobart PICU face and they have nurtured the concept of a community Fun Run to support the Paediatric Unit. Our inaugural event will be a fundraiser for Hobart’s PICU and we know that our community will get behind this initiative.

Siobhan Miller (SCO) One of Scotland’s foremost singers, Siobhan Miller is an exceptional talent, renowned for her unique vocal style paired with her evocative song-writing. Miller creates music with detail and rich melodies that combine the sounds of indie and alternative music with sounds from her roots in folk music.

Jack Carty (AUS) Critically acclaimed Australian songwriter Jack Carty writes with an honesty, patience and love of the craft learned through the sheltered valleys and close-knit communities of a rural childhood spent in sleepy Bellingen, NSW. It’s a rare thing that has allowed the poetic traveller to take his quiet truths and breathtaking live show to audiences across The UK, Europe, North America, New Zealand and Australia since he first started recording and releasing original music in 2010.

Local artists: This year SCC is delighted to present 'Rebecca and James' from Dover.
