Every year corporate teams dust off their running shoes for a very special cause – the Cure Kids Adventure Race. We wanted to do our bit to fund medical research to allow young Kiwis to enjoy a healthy childhood, so we entered our aptly named team, ‘Over the Hills’, for the March 2015 race.
Now, this event isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s staged over three legs and can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours, depending on your level of fitness and orienteering abilities, or lack thereof as we discovered during our own 1 hour ‘detour’.
None-the-less we completed the race in a very respectable 8.5 hours, placing us 11th out of 35 teams. But when it came to money Over the Hills gained first place, raising a total of $35,000.00 (including funds generated by an auction Lanta hosted for the occasion).
Overall the event made a whopping $420,000.00 for Cure Kids. And hearing some of the brave children we did it for speak at the prize giving made the exhaustion and multiple muscle strains all worthwhile.
Keeping the rescuers afloat.
Once again we are proud to support this vital lifeline for the Auckland region.
