Cigna signs on with Round the Bays for two more years Sport Wellington has renewed its major partnership of its award-winning event Wellington Round the Bays. Leading insurance provider Cigna has signed on as principal sponsor and naming rights holder for the Wellington Round the Bays events for another two years until 2018, which will include next year’s 40th anniversary of the fun run. Sport Wellington delivers the event each year as part of their vision for everyone in the Wellington region to have a lifelong involvement in sport and active recreation. Wellington-based Cigna has a strong affinity with the communities in which Round the Bays operates, and the partnership fits well with the company’s focus on health and wellbeing. Cigna chief executive, Lance Walker, said after becoming the principal sponsor in 2014 and experiencing first-hand what a great event Round the Bays was for Wellington, it was an easy decision to renew Cigna’s partnership with Sport. “Round the Bays continues to be Cigna’s biggest sponsorship. The event sits well with our commitment to empower Kiwis to live well and stay well.” Sport Wellington chief executive Phil Gibbons said the partnership with Cigna was outstanding because of their commitment to making a difference in the community. “Both Cigna and Sport Wellington want to provide the best experience we can for all 14,000 participants and the 300 volunteers who help us deliver the event.” Sport Wellington has organised the iconic event since 1999 and the continued growth in participation has seen Round the Bays become one of New Zealand’s largest community sporting events.

had 14 athletes from across Wellington region travel to Hamilton to compete. Parafed Wellington Sport Coordinator, Melissa Pepler said she was excited about the team’s participation and success in the games. “The Wellington team competed in a range of different sports during the two-day event and gave 110 per cent to everything they tried. “We are so proud of the group and can’t wait to take on more events and activities this year.” Three team members won individual awards, Melissa said. Libby Leikis won the ‘Overall Female in Athletics’ award, Mitchell Lang won the ‘Overall Male in

Melissa thanked the committed parents and families who invested time and energy into making the opportunity become a reality for their children as well as Parafed Wellington’s funding partner, the Four Winds Foundation. Parafed Wellington’s goal is to provide a pathway into sport for people with physical disabilities, through a range of sport and recreation opportunities and an active youth group for five through 18-year-olds. For more information, head to www.parafedwellington.co.nz
