Ki­wis up to chal­lenge

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Kiwi ath­letes have racked up an­other vic­tory over their transTas­man ri­vals by tak­ing out the in­au­gu­ral ANZA Chal­lenge. Nearly 1000 peo­ple joined the New Zealand team of celebrity sports stars for a pub­lic run on Oc­to­ber 20 at the Auck­land Do­main. The event marked the end of the six-day chal­lenge where sports stars and celebri­ties ran, rowed, cy­cled and sailed on both sides of the ditch to raise funds for char­i­ties. A team of ath­letes from Mt Al­bert Gram­mar School were among those who took part in a 5km school race. All en­try fees from the Auck­land char­ity run went to the Hal­berg Dis­abil­ity Sports Foun­da­tion which helps phys­i­cally dis­abled New Zealan­ders par­tic­i­pate in sport.
