Family Fun Day & The Great Race

Family Fun Day & The Great Race

Event Date

Saturday, 10 October 2015

On Saturday 10th October we are running two great events to celebrate World Hospice Day! Come along to our Family Fun Day on Saturday 10th October at Gala Street Reserve, from 10am – 2pm. There will be old fashioned races for all ages to take part in such as a sack race, wheelbarrow race, three-legged race, etc. There will be food stalls, a sausage sizzle, a coffee cart for parents, a bouncy castle and mini jeeps for the kids. We ask for a donation of $1 per race and there will be a limited float so we would be grateful if you could raid the piggy banks and bring change with you! What we are really hoping for is a great family day out for everyone. If we can raise money for Hospice Southland at the same time, all the better. Most of all we would just like you to come along, bring friends, family and relatives and have FUN. Alongside our Family Fun Day, on Saturday 10th October we are holding a fundraising event, The Great Race! The Great Race is an Amazing Race style event where teams of four will compete on foot to solve clues and get to a particular location around Invercargill where they will complete challenges. Team entry fee is $100 ($25 per person) and other fundraising is encouraged. For example each team member could aim to raise an additional $100 prior to race day, with all proceeds going to Hospice Southland. Fundraising could include bake sales, scratchie boards, sausage sizzles and anything else the team can dream up! There will be a prize for the team that raises the most. Teams will meet at Gala Street Reserve from 9.30am on Saturday 10th October, to be given their first clue and be ready to race to their first location by 10am. There will be 10 locations in all, with challenges to complete at each before teams can move on to the next location. To prevent congestion at challenge locations, a number of teams will set off first, with a gap before the next lot. Teams will be timed, and the team with the fastest time and all challenges completed will be the winner. There will be prizes for the winners and spot prizes on the day. Teams will finish back at Gala Street Reserve, where they join in the festivities of our Family Fun Day. So grab three friends, colleagues or family members, and register your team for The Great Race today!
