Fun run and walk all on, new spon­sors in

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Plan­ning for the Mata­mata Col­lege Fun Run/Walk sched­uled for Fri­day evening on March 15 is well un­der way and the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee is pleased to an­nounce that in ad­di­tion to the main event spon­sor, Mata­mata Mitre 10, the fol­low­ing lo­cal busi­nesses have come on board as ma­jor race spon­sors: Metso Min­er­als 5km Run Mata­mata Di­rec­tional Drilling Ltd 5km Walk

Candy Gille­spie Ltd Char­tered Ac­coun­tants 10km Run

Mata­mata Med­i­cal 10km Walk.

Sports Club chair­man Steve Lang­don said he was rapt to have the key spon­sors in place for the Mata­mata Col­lege Sports Club’s main fundraiser.

The pro­ceeds from the Fun Run/ Walk will go to­wards up­grad­ing equip­ment across all

Cen­tre codes in the re­fur­bished col­lege gyms.

The long over­due re­fur­bish­ment is due for com­ple­tion early in term one.

It features new ceil­ings, a new floor in the Lu­cas Gym, up­graded chang­ing rooms, and im­proved light­ing.

This will im­prove things for not just the stu­dents, but for the wider Mata­mata com­mu­nity.

The Fun-Run has proved a very suc­cess­ful and en­joy­able fam­ily event and ap­peals to a wide range of peo­ple, from the se­ri­ous ath­lete to the per­son who is just get­ting off the couch af­ter a pe­riod of time away from ac­tiv­ity.

The move to an evening slot was in­tro­duced suc­cess­fully in 2011 and the tim­ing of it is ideal for win­ter sports teams to in­cor­po­rate it as a team build­ing ex­er­cise into their pre-sea­son fit­ness train­ing pro­grammes.

For 2013 there are also re­duced en­try fees.

All par­tic­i­pants go in the draw to win some fan­tas­tic prizes on the evening and there are plenty of spot prizes for those who run and/or walk the five kilo­me­tre or 10km walk and run events.

Mata­mata Col­lege con­tin­ues to re­ceive out­stand­ing sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses and looks for­ward to them coming on board again as mi­nor spon­sors to help make the event a success.

If you would like to take up this op­por­tu­nity to sup­port a very suc­cess­ful event please make con­tact with Mata­mata Col­lege’s sport co- or­di­na­tor, Donna Gaskell, on 881 9018 or email don­nag@mata­mata col­lege.school.nz.
