Richmond Olympian and school principal pied in the face for charity

Richmond Olympian Evan Dunfee got more than he bargained for when he turned up at Kingswood elementary last week to pick up a cheque on behalf of children’s charity KidSport.

As part of the professional race walker’s bid to raise money while walking 25 kilometres a day for 25 days – to mark KidSport’s 25th anniversary – Kingswood principal Ron Manning told his students they could pie him and Dunfee in the face if they raised $1,000.

Clearly motivated, they exceeded their target, bringing in more than $1,200 in just 5 days.

Pictures tell a thousand words and it appears as if Dunfee and Manning enjoyed the taste.

As well as his daily 25 kilometres – which he recently completed - Dunfee visited 25 schools to tell his story and give motivational talks.

KidSport is a nationwide non-profit agency that helps support families that find it difficult to come up with the funds to register their children for community sporting programs.
