Steve Jandrell, CEO of Web Genius is well-aware of what goes on behind the scenes with the Campaign Manager driving a significant amount of mahi involving Web Genius staff and others to make this event happen on an annual basis. "A huge thank you to everyone who took part in helping to raise funds for such an important cause, and an extra special thanks all volunteers and organisers, including the big contribution from the Web Genius team to make this year’s event such a successful one."

“Another excellent outcome from 2021 is we have approved three new Fundraising Partners for 2022, Kāpiti Kindness Trust, Whirlwind Kāpiti and Work Ready Kāpiti,” says Richard. We look forward to working with all Fundraising Raising Partners again in 2022 and raising as much money as we can to support their amazing efforts in our community: Challenge for Change Kāpiti, Kāpiti Basketball Association, Kāpiti College, Kāpiti Kindness Trust, Kāpiti Youth Support, No 49 Squadron Air Cadets Kāpiti, Otaki College, Paraparaumu College, The Shed Project Kāpiti, Whirlwind Kāpiti, Work Ready Kāpiti, ZEAL Kāpiti.
