Fundraising to help Kunst

GYMPIE horsewoman Kathy Kunst is pushing on with her fundraising efforts to travel to the United States to represent Australia in the World Barrel Racing Championships.

Kunst won selection in the Australian team after leading the points on the national circuit but now she has to fund her trip to the United States in October to compete.

As part of the fund raising efforts Margo Keeley of Tin Can Bay Houseboats donated two nights and three days for up to five people on one of their houseboats for Kathy to raffle.

Gympie solicitor Graham Neilson drew the winning ticket with Anthea Tshirpig being the lucky winner.

Kunst thanked Tin Can Bay Houseboats for donating the wonderful prize and said it was help like this that made her even more determined to get to the US and showed what Aussie competitors could achieve.

Her next major fund raising event will be a barrel racing competition at the Gympie Active Riders Grounds in Brewery Road on Saturday, September 11.
