Kapiti Run for Youth open for registration

Kapiti Run for Youth open for registration

The Web Genius Kapiti Run for Youth (KR4Y) is ticking away with a little over 200 registrations. “The target is to achieve 500 people participating,” says Richard Calkin of Web Genius.

Various groups and individuals have already started their fundraising efforts and there is money in the bank which is great to see at this stage. “The earlier you start fundraising the easier it is and every little bit counts towards the goal of giving back to Youth Quest and other fundraising partners who have registered to take part in the event,” says Helene Judge, the Campaign Manager for KR4Y.

Helene goes on to say that “we have a new fundraising partner just registered – the Paraparaumu Playcentre. They are super excited about participating and are using the event as a way of fundraising for the Playcentre. By being a fundraising partner, this actually means they will receive back 40% of what they fundraise.” Fundraising partners simply need to have a youth focus in their objectives.

Registered so far, are Activate Youth, Girl Guiding Kapiti, Kapiti Basketball Association, Kapiti Youth Support, Kenakena School Boys Mentoring Group, No 49 (Kapiti) Squadron Air Training Corps and Paraparaumu Playcentre. When you register to participate in KR4Y everyone must choose who their fundraising partner will be. This means that 40% of what you raise automatically goes to Youth Quest, 40% to your choice of fundraising partner and 20% to event logistics.
