The 2012 Run the Rock Team received a very warm welcome at the Star of the Sea in Holyrood on June 15. The 12 members of the team who started their cross island run in Port Aux Basques on June 7th were very thankful for the reception that was shown from residents of Holyrood and area. The pride of being part of the group and supporting the wish of a child was very evident as each member introduced themselves and spoke about their participation in the run to all those in attendance.

An amount of $ 5,021 was raised on behalf of the run which goes to look after the wish of a sick child. This was a fantastic amount said Joy and the support shown by the community was phenomenal.
