Solar Victoria CEO Stan Krpan led a team of 11 Solar Victoria staff and family in the DFB Recruitment Latrobe City Community Fun Run and Walk on Sunday 14 March 2021.

A part of the Morwell community for more than two years, Solar Victoria delivers the Victorian Government’s Solar Homes Program and recently announced Solar for Business Program.

Solar Victoria employee and member of the Traralgon Harriers, Andrew Legge threw out the challenge to colleagues, who jumped at the chance.

Solar Victoria Executive Director of Customer Experience Lyn Bowring took the opportunity to walk the 5km course with Solar Victoria staff, family members and even some pets.

The fun run is coordinated by the Traralgon Harriers running club to raise money for Gippsland Rotary Centenary House, and this year drew a field of over 200. 

Gippsland Centenary Rotary House provides a home away from home for patients and families visiting the Gippsland Cancer Care Centre, and relies on the support of charities.

Traralgon Harriers president Phill Mayer said the running club was keen to attract new runners from all walks of life. Running can be a great equaliser and has proven to be a major player in keeping the community connected throughout the COVID restrictions.

“Committing my personal support and the backing of Solar Victoria to help raise funds for Gippsland Centenary Rotary House was an easy decision to make.” 

“The Traralgon Harriers annually raise more than $5500 at this event and it’s terrific to help support such a vital local organisation.” 

“Latrobe Valley is at the heart of Victoria’s energy infrastructure, and it’s great to get involved with the community alongside our growing Solar Victoria team.

“Solar Victoria has established its presence in the Latrobe Valley and are looking forward to moving in to our new headquarters in the Latrobe Valley Gov Hub. We are also looking forward to growing our presence in the local community and contributing to more great community organisations and initiatives as we grow.”
