IT WAS AN AWESOME DAY OUT – GREAT WEATHER, EXCELLENT ENTERTAINMENT, SEVERAL HUNDRED SMILEY PEOPLE AND LOTS OF LOVELY CASH RAISED FOR CHRISTCHURCH!
More than 100 up-for-it teams turned out on Sunday 29 May and ran, walked, skipped and even cartwheeled around the block for Britomart Block Benefit. Punters of all ages, fitness ability and fashion sense participated and plenty more came and cheered them on.
More than $33,000 was raised for the Red Cross Christchurch Earthquake Appeal through a mixture of sponsorship and donation. One of the more than 20 Les Mills teams, the Les Mills International Work Horses (Lucy's team) , took the team fundraising prize with a total of $4000 raised.
