Stepping up for the Climb Against Cancer
Inspired by friends recently diagnosed with cancer, Andrew Jones has co-organised a 24 hour fundraiser for the Lions Cancer Lodge in Hamilton. If 25 people climbed the 1349 steps of the Hakarimata Track they would have climbed the height of Mt Everest. But hundreds of people stepped up to the challenge, summiting the peak more than 300 times – including several of our hardy team – and raising about $4000 for the lodge. Outstanding! Pictured is our Maz, with her certificate for climbing to the top and back.
Backing a talented young cricketer
Zac Gibson is young, talented and pain-free! The 20-year-old from Te Awamutu is now a part of the Northern Districts Cricket team and has a promising future – unlike his shoes! They were “absolutely stuffed”, says Andrew Jones after Zac sought help for his shin splints. Impressed with Zac’s talent, Waikato Podiatry is now sponsoring Zac for the season, which will mean he has great shoes and ongoing podiatry support. “I really appreciate the support and work from Andrew and the team at Waikato Podiatry, enabling me to play pain-free,” he said.
