Singers give charity a run

SINGERS Prinnie Stevens and Mahalia Barnes of The Voice fame will headline the Hills News Hills M2 Run for The Hills festival.

The two friends, who battled it out in one of the most emotional episodes on Channel Nine's first series of The Voice, will come to The Hills to support the fund-raising initiative for babies and preschoolers with a disability.

"As a mother I know how hard it can be with kids . . . I support a great cause that helps parents with children with disabilities by giving them access to vital services," Ms Stevens said.

The inaugural Run for The Hills — an eight-kilometre fun run and festival — is the major fund-raiser for the charity Reach for the Rainbow.

It will be held on October 7.

The charity was founded by the people's choice NSW Woman of the Year Yvonne Keane and raises funds to support babies and preschoolers.

Ms Keane's goal is to fund the world's first early intervention hub for families to reach comprehensive specialists and services at little or no cost.

Castle Towers will host a festival after the fun run with carnival rides, animal farm, and giant AMF Bowling set plus the special performance by Prinnie and Mahalia at Arthur Whitling Park, Castle Hill.

Castle Towers marketing manager Andrea Maguire said Castle Towers was proud to support the event.

"I encourage everyone to take part in this extremely worthwhile event and to join in the fun on [Castle Hill] main street for the day."
