Key Sun has jumped on board to be a drink station sponsor of the community based 20th annual charity Pub-to-Pub fun run and walk, held on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

This iconic event is touted as a local version of City-to-Surf and is run over 13km starting on sand at DY Beach along a picturesque route to The Newport Arms Hotel, one of Sydney’s most iconic hotels.

The event attracts punters young and old, big and small and from near and far. The monies provided by sponsorship are key to the success of this community event as it allows the operating costs to be covered so that ALL monies from the event itself can be donated to the beneficiaries.

In 2012, The Pub-to-Pub walk and fun run will be celebrating its 20th year and is a one of the most popular community based events for the Northern Beaches and is now an institution that forms part of the annual calendar for many local residents.

The aim of the event is to raise much needed funds for needy charities including local Surf Clubs, the Manly and Mona Vale Hospitals, local SES, NSW Rural Fire Brigade, Stewart House, Sunnyfield and Life Education.

Over the past 19 years well over $900,000 has been raised from this event with over $165,000 being raised in 2011. Last year, the event was another huge success reaching full capacity of 5000 entrants, up from 4000 entrants in 2012 and sold out 2 weeks prior to close.

Key Sun Zinke has a team running/walking on the day and can’t wait to be part of the celebrations. Look out for our Key Sun Zinke singlets as we will be handing out samples on the day. If you don’t see us running the route, look out for our sponsored drink station!
