New GODZone corporate event raises money for Starship

Media Release from 100% PURE Racing, Queenstown, New Zealand 25.10.2012 New Corporate Event At Godzone Will Raise Money For Starship Foundation 100% PURE Racing are delighted to announce a new Corporate Challenge event that will run in conjunction with the Orion Health GODZone adventure race next March.

The new event represents an exciting opportunity for organisations to get involved in a shortened version of the high--profile adventure race whilst supporting New Zealand’s national children’s hospital.

The Corporate Challenge will run along the same lines as the Orion Health GODZone event, using a multi--day, non--stop, expedition--style format. However the course will be shorter with corporate teams allowed as many as three days to complete the secret course.

Orion Health GODZone Race Director Warren Bates, himself a father of three, is keen to promote the association with Starship Foundation.

“In 2012, the other Race Directors and I adopted the Starship Foundation as our official race charity, a very worthy cause which raises funds for our national children’s hospital. We were very touched by heart--wrenching stories of children from all over New Zealand who Starship supports.

It is a cause we strongly believe in, and are therefore proud to announce we have once again adopted The Starship Foundation as our charity for Chapter 2 of GODZone.

To raise as much money as we can for this great cause we are thrilled to announce the creation of the Corporate Challenge – a shortened version of the traditional race designed especially for corporate organisations.

This will take place from 12--16 March 2013 and will traverse approximately 200km. The funds raised will go toward the Starship National Air Ambulance -- a vital service which transfers critically ill and injured children from around the country to Starship for the specialist care they require.” Starship Foundation CEO Brad Clark says he's excited to partner with the Orion Health GODZone team in this way. “As so many Starship families from across New Zealand face their own challenges, we urge companies wherever they are based, to take inspiration and undertake the Corporate Challenge to support Starship kids and have a great time doing so.”

Entries are now open and businesses are encouraged to visit the GODZone Corporate Challenge website at www.godzonechallenge.com for more information.
