The club is pleased to announce that ACO Polycrete, an Australian drain manufacturer, has become the major sponsor of the clubs 20 year old flagship event, the Heart of the Lake Fun Run. The event, which is to be held on 30 May 2010 at Lake Gillawarna near Bankstown, attracted well over 250 participants in 2009 and is expected to easily surpass this number in 2010. 

Whilst the more dedicated runners and joggers generally tackle the 10km event, there are many shorter distance runners,beginners,walkers and children that find the 3km option a great challenge. Having a traffic-free scenic course has also helped the event become popular over the years. ACO is looking to have many of its employees attend the event and have a bit of fun. The event will also support two charities, the Bankstown East Hills Handicapped Association and the Cancer Council.
