Carrying baton at Relay for Life
Waratah staff from Tokoroa ran and walked for 22 hours at the Relay for Life event in Hamilton recently.
Team members took turn to carry the baton for cancer survivors and supporters around a track (approx 400m) at Ruakura AgResearch. Diane (and Rosie the baby), Anu, Fred, and Karen Shaw were at the event from the official start at 2pm Saturday until the triumphant end at 12pm Sunday.
The Waratah team raised $1353 for the Cancer Society.
If people would like to make donations to the Waikato and Bay of Plenty Cancer Society, the fundraising site and account are still open at everydayhero.co.nz/waratah_ adventurers.
Special thanks to Waratah staff : Murrey Totton who helped us put up the Paraonui Sea Scouts tent – twice, because the first time it was inside-out, to Vincent Javier and Sophia Javier who carried the baton through the hot afternoon and to Tim Honey- field and Shayne Lyons who did the bulk of the walking through the night.
BUILT TO RACE: The staff at Waratah are built for work and to race. The staff recently took part in the Relay for Life event in Matamata. L-R Annalie Bronkhorst (pushing Rosie Moss), Diane Moss, Anuradha Khilnani, and Fred Gan.
