When he isn’t working hard every day to keep the Metro Underground Rail Loop (MURL) lit, George loves to get his runners on and pound the pavement. This year, George is committing to running the entire Metro network – 467km – to raise important funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a cause close to his family’s heart.
For more than 10 years, George has been part of a small team of electricians who maintain lights and electrical infrastructure in the MURL including tunnel pumps and exhaust fans. Outside of work, George is an avid runner who enjoys going long distances and continuing to challenge himself, often in the name of charity.
Starting Wednesday 10 June, George will endeavor to run 467 kilometres over ten days (that’s more than a marathon each day!), to raise money in support of the NBCF’s important work in breast cancer research. George explained that he had the idea to run the entire MTM network while on a training run between Ferntree Gully and Belgrave: “Sounded easy until I put in some homework and discovered I had 467kms to run!”
Infrastructure Facilities Manager Scott Hollingsworth said “George brings the same commitment to both his fundraising and his work. We will be cheering him on while he takes on this huge challenge.”
