Waitaki Herald - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

Get your fam­ily or a bunch of friends to­gether, find your gear and get train­ing now for the Had­low to Har­bour Walk/ Jog/Run on March 8, 2015.

All fit­ness lev­els are catered for. You can choose a 10km walk/jog/ run or a more friendly 3km op­tion.

Or­gan­ised as a com­mu­nity char­ity event by the Ro­tary Club of Ti­maru North, Had­low to Har­bour has a long his­tory in Ti­maru that stretches back at least 25 years and the num­ber of peo­ple tak­ing part has grown ev­ery year now at­tract­ing more than 1500 peo­ple.

The Dix­ieland Jazz Band will en­ter­tain at the fin­ish and prize giv­ing area, this year to be in front of the Sound Shell, and Moun­tain­view High School Jazz Band will be send­ing you off en­er­gised at the 10km start line with some rous­ing tunes.

Had­low to Har­bour (H2H) is sup­ported by the South Can­ter­bury Dis­trict Health Board, Ful­ton Ho­gan, Tele­com, The TimaruHer­ald, and var­i­ous other lo­cal firms and or­gan­i­sa­tions and is known for its fun at­mos­phere and friend­li­ness with peo­ple re­turn­ing year af­ter year. Par­tic­i­pants also know they are sup­port­ing im­por­tant lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions as the event is a fab­u­lous op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­nity groups to raise money.

Thanks to Ro­tary, there is now an easy and healthy way for South Can­ter­bury groups to fundraise while tak­ing part in the H2H event. It’s 100 per cent self-fund­ing – you get ev­ery­thing you raise.

By ac­cu­mu­lat­ing spon­sor­ship for each run­ner you have an ef­fec­tive way to raise money for your sport, char­ity or school.

To gather spon­sor­ship here’s what you need to do.

Gather your team and ap­ply on line at H2H.org.nz to re­ceive your of­fi­cial spon­sor­ship forms.

Seek spon­sor­ship pledges to par­tic­i­pate in the H2H.

Turn up at the start line with your spon­sor­ship forms and have them ‘com­ple­tion stamped’ at the fin­ish line. Col­lect your pledges. The only cost to you is the ticket en­try. All funds raised go to your group.
