Baulkham Hills couple Allan and Kerrie Sicard are running in the The Sun-Herald City2Surf this weekend in an effort to raise money for NSW Police Legacy.
The pair, both police officers, have been doing strength and endurance training to prepare for the 14-kilometre race, which drew 86,137 registered participants last year and raised more than $4 million for charities.
Mrs Sicard, a sergeant at Quakers Hill Police Station, has been in the police force for almost 30 years, which includes a seven-year break to have children.
This is the third time she will take part in the race but the first time for Police Legacy.
‘‘I wanted to promote Legacy and the role it has in looking after families of deceased colleagues,’’ she said.
Mr Sicard, whose late uncle was a police officer, is taking part in the event for the eighth time.
‘‘It’s a chance to support a good charity but it’s also a fun event,’’ the Harbourside Local Area Command superintendent said.
‘‘It’s a great thing to do together in a team.’’
City2Surf is on Sunday, starting at 7.55am from Hyde Park. To donate or view which roads will be closed on the day, visit www.city2surf.com.au.
