Going the Distance On Sunday 16 March 265 CMDHB employees put on their running shoes to participate in the 2008 Round the Bays. Round the Bays is a 8.4km run or walk around Auckland’s waterfront. This year there were over 40,000 registered runners.
First home with the impressive time of 38 minutes 20 seconds was Russal Fredericks, healthAlliance and in second place was Kim Arcus, CMDHB project manager, who ran a time of 42 minutes and 18 seconds. Congratulations to both.
To reward the staff for their participation there was a BBQ at Madill’s Farm park. It was here that staff demolished the hamburgers and sausages prepared by Geraint Martin, Ron Pearson and other DHB staff members. There was then a presentation of spot prizes including pedometers, movie vouchers, children’s Rainbows End vouchers, a cd player, rebel sport vouchers, a DVD player, beach towels, children’s wallets and finally New Zealand-themed coasters. Congratulations to all staff who participated in the event and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
