The people of Aitutaki would appreciate your help:
QRWC member Di Adams and her partner John visited the Cook Islands in May of this year and they spent time on the island of Aitutaki to participate in the first ever marathon event at this location.

Aitutaki is a small island 240km off the coast of Rarotonga, with a population of around 2000. In addition to the marathon, half marathon and 10km events, as part of the Aitutaki running week, locals were encouraged to take part in the first ever 5km Airport Runway Fun Run/Walk. Around 100 local families turned out, many of whom did not have proper running gear, but they were very enthusiastic and happy to participate. Please refer to the attached photos here

While there is a high incidence of obesity in the Cook Islands population, there is a corresponding push to promote exercise, sport and healthy living in the local schools.

Di and John will be returning to the Cook Islands in September of this year, and they will be taking with them any new or good condition pre-loved sportswear they can take, including running shoes, walking shoes, shorts, shirts, hats, sports balls and anything else that will encourage and help school children and their families to get out and about to be active, fit and healthy. To that end, we are asking you to donate any of these new or pre-loved sporting goods, so Di and John can continue the fantastic volunteer work they're doing to make a positive and constructive contribution to our fellow man, woman, boy and girl.

Please bring along any of these sporting goods to our Sunday morning walks on July 22 and / or August 19.

In the event that we collect more than Di and John can take in their own luggage, we might even chip in $5 each to pay for extra luggage so Di and John can take all of what we donate. Any and all of what we contribute will be much appreciated by Di and John and more importantly, by the recipients, and each item will most definitely be well used into the future.

NOTE: The 2018 QRWC Road Walk Season has already started, but you can still register any time by completing the Individual Registration Form or the Family Registration Form.
