Running And Walking For Project Hope

November 9, 2004

Running And Walking For Project Hope

The Project Hope Charity Runs and Walks are coming up fast.

Event organiser Iris Thomas from Community Sport Trust expects well over 1000 walkers and runners will enter the inaugural event to support Project Hope, the planned district cancer centre, on Sunday, November 14.

All schools in the area have been invited to enter with a $500 cash prize up for grabs. Students entry forms will be gathered with one drawn at random at the finish to win the prize

Thomas is delighted that donations are already rolling in on top of the entry fees.

"We estimate we have about $1000 in donations so far with some participants seeking further sponsors on the official sponsorship form. Anyone wishing to use the event to raise money for Project Hope can contact me for an official form."

Major sponsors, the Bay of Plenty Times, are entering 50 staff in the event and Westpac has a group of 40 taking part. Tauranga Girls' Rowing Club and the Mount Maunganui RSA are also getting in on the action, each entering teams in the event.

Entries will be taken on the day until the start of each race - 9am for the half marathon and 9.30am onwards for the 10km, 5km and 3km fun runs.
