A runaway success

Farida Master was there to cheer and capture the five and10 km fun run/walk hosted by the Highbrook Rotary in words and pictures.


Living up to their reputation of being highly efficient, Highbrook Rotary business house fun run-walk challenge was a much organised affair.

There was an air of friendly, business rivalry as 460 fitness enthusiasts registered and turned up in their company colours to compete on Wednesday, Feb 25 at 5.30pm.   

Past district 9920 governor and commentator Rotarian Rob Crabtree kept the pace upbeat with lively commentary and state-of-the-art technology--recording every participant’s timing with registered name tags.

The proceeds of the fun run will go towards funding the Flat Bush School library and to Middlemore Health.

A big contingent from Healthy Hearts was spotted doing the five km walk, accompanied by cardio-respiratory physiotherapist, Sarah Mooney.

Healthy Hearts is an initiative of Counties Manukau Health for people suffering from heart failure.

Another group of people with chronic lung condition who are a part of the Better Breathing programme also challenged themselves. They felt safe and supported by respiratory physiotherapist Sarah Candy and her team.
