Target 10 is a new initiative in Ballarat combining two events – the Target 10 dB (decibel) Community Hearing Awareness challenge and the Target 10 laps endurance running fundraiser – to promote good hearing health for Ballarat residents, whilst raising support for EARS Incorporated hearing clinic projects in developing countries.
Situated in the vicinity of the Ballarat Grammar Boatshed (Forest Street and Wendouree Parade), school-aged children and adults will be able to have a free hearing test in sound proof conditions. Meanwhile, Target 10 runners will be completing 10 laps of Lake Wendouree (60km) and raising money to deliver life-changing audiology services and training for those who can least afford it in poor countries like the Dominican Republic in Central America and Malawi in Africa.
And to celebrate, once the running and hearing testing is over, popular local covers band Black Cat will play at the Portico Restaurant, 203 Dana Street (near SMB), on the evening of Saturday 10th July from 8pm. The covercharge of $5 will go directly to EARS Inc supported projects. This will be a great way to complete the Target 10 event, celebrate the achievements of runners, the work of event volunteers and the support of the community.
