About Mary Preston

Mary Preston has been involved with the Energy Breakthrough for many years, after her eldest son was asked “to ride in this event in Maryborough” way back in 1995. Shortly thereafter her youngest son & husband initiated the Human Powered Vehicle program at Eaglehawk Secondary College and she was suddenly the parent who organised the food and the team's uniforms! After that she decided to become part of the organising committee, has been the TRYathlon Coordinator now for many years, as well as overseeing the Junkyard Challenge. Although there is a mountain of work needed to pull the event together, she acknowledges she has met many great folk along the way and it's always good to "catch up each November”!
