Meet Griffith's human billboard

AS FAR as prime advertising space goes, you won't get much better than this.

Standing at over six feet tall and clad head to toe in an orange lycra morph suit, you can't miss Dane McGuirk.

The 99.7 Star FM breakfast show host will act as a mobile human billboard when he runs the Casella Wines Visy City to Lake course on Sunday, March 2.

He is offering up portions of his anatomy, at a starting price of $50, to help raise funds for the St Vincent's Private Community Hospital.

So far Community Heart Griffith has claimed his heart, Betty Boop his chest, co-host Tanya Hennessy his groin area, Griffith Tourism his backside with the slogan "a butt load of things to do in Griffith" and Derek Forner Building his torso space.

As a newcomer to Griffith Mr McGuirk said he was happy he could be part of the fundraising efforts.

"Being new to town and doing what I do I think it's important to give back to the community," he said.

"It's such a great cause I'm happy to help.The idea is that people can pick a body part and we will put their logo or photo on the suit.

"I'm really excited to be doing it. I love fun runs."

City to Lake organising committee member Naomi Brugger is urging locals to take advantage of the early bird registration, which closes this Sunday, February 16.

"We just want people to have some fun with it," Mrs Brugger said.

"There are only three weeks to go, so we want everyone to register to be part of this fun community event.

The breakfast show hosts will also act as emcees on the day.

If you are interested in buying a piece of Dane's prime advertising space, contact 13 12 16 Monday to Friday between 6am and 9am or after 9am on 6964 0800.
