THE community spirit is unbreakable.

The dedication, undeniable.

And the fundraising ball is still rolling full-steam ahead.

This weekend, many participating in the Pentath-Run will enjoy a delicious breakfast, with all proceeds to go towards the expansion of the Allora Medical Centre.

Allora Medical Support Group chairman Jon Constable said the breakfast would add valuable funding to the kitty.

"The whole community has got behind this and this is another step forward," Mr Constable said.

"It's so great to see everyone on board, and the majority of people in this town have put forward contributions."

Fundraising volunteer Liz Staunton said it was the generosity of many people that made this particular fundraiser possible.

"A lot of runners have donated directly to the Allora Medical Centre fund and their registration fee includes breakfast," Mrs Staunton said.

Foodworks has donated all breakfast supplies to feed 200 runners.

"It's so wonderful this community has pitched in and contributed," Mrs Staunton said.

Along with the Pentath-Run breakfast fundraiser, preparations are under way for future money-raising events.

With sights set on at least $220,000, the Allora Medical Support Group will continue to plug away until they can build a bigger and better medical centre.
