Falcons Girls clock up kms for a cause

MAY should have been the month the Geelong Falcons Girls were wrapping up their NAB League home-and-away season and, hopefully, preparing for a finals campaign.

Instead, with COVID-19 calling a halt to the season, the Falcons list has been training in insolation and taking part in weekly challenges.

The latest challenge for the squad involves a good cause, with the players signing up for The May 50k, a fundraiser for research into Multiple Sclerosis.

The challenge is to complete 50kms of running of walking during May.

“We’ve been doing weekly challenges for the girls to keep them in touch and give them a bit of fun during their time off,” Talent Manager Bree Beckley said.

“The weekly challenges they’ve been doing include some football kicking challenges, who can do the best trick shot; that sort of thing.

With one of our activities, we thought we’d participate in The May 50k and help raise awareness and be active at the same time – help with a bit of training while they can’t train as a team.”
