New York Marathon – Super Saturday Review
Our first fundraiser of the year was a massive success. People turned out in massive numbers thanks to the huge promotion from our group of runners. They day started with a group 40 strong participating in the fitness session. The session included boxing (lead by Mitch and Steve), lots of stair runs, core and abdominal exercises. Everyone worked really hard knowing breakfast was not far off.
Another 30 people joined us for breakfast afterwards. Breakfast included muesli, fruit and sausages. However, the highlight of breakfast had to be the amazing pancakes, made and cooked by the ever skilful Adrian / Danny / Vlad (his specialty was shanking the mixture together). The pancakes were a huge hit boys! After breakfast the hugely anticipated raffle was drawn. The raffle included a night accommodation at Urban Hotels, an array of Kapai Puku goods, and a box of Endura gels.
A massive thanks needs to go to Urban Hotels / Kapai Puku / Sports Recovery for their continual support and generous raffle prizes they offered up. One of the highlight’s of the morning was when Graeme from Kapai Puku had everyone enthralled with his lecture style speech about the benefits of Kapai Puku (toilet humour will always get the attention of a massive group – well done Graeme).
Thanks to all of the New York crew for organising and ensuring out first fund raising effort of the year was a triumph.
Finally, thanks to everyone who came down and supported us. The team really appreciated it. Stay tuned for our next event…. The Cocktail Evening!
