Raising funds in muddy bog
KIDS and adults were all smiles in the mud at the inaugural Tauranga Boys’ College Mud Challenge at Pahoia Domain on Sunday. About 320 people showed up, some dressed up, to take on the 6km boggy obstacle course (3km for the kids) including crawling under a cargo net and taking on a grimy slip and slide. The event was a fundraiser for the college’s newly-established rugby hardship fund, which aimed to subsidise or pay in full rugby-related costs for students.
