Hope and possibility 5km Run, Walk or Wheel

This Sunday at North Harbour Stadium we see the return of the Achilles International New Zealand event, Hope & Possibility 5km Run Walk and Wheel 2014.

The main objective Hope & Possibility Run Walk & Wheel is to bring together those with and those without disabilities into the one main stream event. All funds raised on the day go back to Achilles New Zealand which aids them to assist disabled New Zealanders into and stay active in sport.

Race Director, Garry Butler, said “Lots will be happening on the day, for a start all finishers get a finishers Medal and goody bag. A chance to meet celebrities TV3s Mike McRoberts, and legends Frank Bunce and Tawera Nikau and fresh from his recent appearance at the Weetbix Kids Triathlon will be Jaden Movold, the most inspiring 10 year old you will meet.”

He said that “individuals can support Achilles NZ by either entering online or turning up on the day everyone is welcome to join in, at just $20 adult and $10 per child, it’s going to be a great day out”.

The event is open to people of all ages and levels of fitness, with and without disabilities. Support this great inspirational event and see you Sunday, entries open at 9.00am.
