Plaque 1 :

The Olympic Dream

This palque was unveiled on 27 June 1993 by Dawn Frase M.B.E. and Geoffrey J Henke A.M (Vice-President of the Australian Olympic Committee) to commemorate the 1992 Olympic Dream Team Run in which 100 teams of 10 runners set out from near this point on 14 March 1992 on a two-day 200km relay race around Port Phillip Bay.

This event brought together, in the spirit of Olympism, a wide variety of corporate and community organisations whose combined efforts raised $5000,000 for the Australian Olympic Committee.  These funds helped to provide grants to all members of Australia`s 1992 Olympic Team, and rewarded 52 athletes who won medals at the games of the XXVth Olympiad in Barcelona.

The Olympic Dream Team Run was conceived, financed and promoted by FCL Interstate Transport Services Pty Ltd and each participant was awarded the Barcelona medal, illustrated on this plate.
