Rais­ing funds in muddy bog

Bay News - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
