Northern beaches mum attempts to win a spot in Spanish triathlon
by hosting a fundraising event for Smile Like Drake
Local Northern Beaches mum, Katrina Hogan is on a quest to raise money for charity, while also trying to secure a coveted spot as an ambassador for Win4Youth to participate in her first triathlon in Spain later this year.
Looking to support a local charity, Katrina has teamed up with SMILE LIKE DRAKE Foundation to create a unique, free event called the ‘TRYathon’ that will give people of all ages to try something new. The event will take place on 6 March at St Augustine’s College at 10am.

Christopher’s parents, Nicolle and Trevor Drake, have filed a new Patent, the first of 3 that they have developed for the SMILE LIKE DRAKE Foundation. “Fish Safe” is for rock-fisherman as rock fishing is the most dangerous sport in Australia. Mike Baird has already requested a meeting with the Drake’s on 3rd October, 2013 (on Christopher’s birthday) to discuss taking Fish Safe to Government for review & funding. They have also been asked to have a meeting Randwick Council regarding “Fish Safe” as Malabar has the highest rate of fatalities and incidents of rock-fishing deaths in our state.
