Nominated by Denise Patterson, Margie was first contacted in July 2017 and notified that she would be a reserve relay runner. Forward to January 27 Margie received another email, advising she had a confirmed place in the relay and her uniform was in the mail!
Completing a lifelong dream of participating in an elite sporting event (originally a youthful dream of participating in a sport at the Commonwealth or Olympic Games though later in life envisioned volunteering at games) Margie carried the 1.5kilo baton for 4 minutes in Bridgetown last Friday, February 23. Surrounded by family and friends the excitement and joy was evident as Margie passed the baton onto the next bearer.
Well done Margie on completing a life goal and representing Dumbleyung in the great, Queen’s Baton Relay!
