Renmark women Ellen
Traeger, Julie Gray and Elaine
Triffit will pack their walking
shoes and head to Adelaide for
the annual City to Bay fun run
later this month.
The Riverlife Trio, named after the
Renmark Paringa Council health ini-
tiative that brought them together, has
had plenty of practise for the 12km
Adelaide to Glenelg City to Bay route
on Sunday, September 21.
Elaine and Ellen met through local
walking groups organised by the
"Elaine and I are in the heart
walking group that's on Mondays
and Thursdays, and we're also in the
Tuesday walking group from Chaffey
House," said Ellen.
Elaine's family completed the City
to Bay in previous years, and she
decided to try it.
"I saw it and I thought, I wonder if
I could do that," she said.
The trio was formed when Ellen
joined and asked her neighbour Julie
to take part too.
"It's something I've always wanted
to do," said Julie.
After completing the Riverlife
10,000 Step Pedometer Challenge in
July, the women are looking forward
to ticking the next item off their buck-
Renmark Paringa Council commu-
nity services officer Stephanie Cough-
lin said it was an honour to have the
women use the Riverlife name.
"Renmark Paringa Council are just
so proud of the three women, (and) to
actually want to call themselves the
Riverlife Trio as well is a real hon-
our," she said.
"I think this shows as well that
the Riverlife program has instilled
something in everybody's heart about
health and well-being."
River life to city run
Riverlife Trio Ellen Traeger, Julie Gray and Elaine Triffit (with Renmark Paringa
Council community services officer Stephanie Coughlin) are getting ready
for this month's City to Bay fun run.
RAMPING UP: Berri's marina is taking shape, with a new four-lane
boat ramp being poured this week. The Berri Barmera Council
project, funded in part by the State Government, will also see
construction of a car park and de-rigging area. The work is expected
to be completed by the end of September.
