Wow! what a great day indeed!
It was a perfect event that not only brought our community together but pushed us to challenge limits, and mindsets.
As an organisation we decided to move off the beaten path and try something a bit more unconventional. So we changed our staff event sponsorship from Ports of Auckland Round the Bays to the Mazda O ROCK Obstacle Run.
Three years later we are still participating in O’Rock with interest levels gaining momentum each year as participation numbers continue to rise.
This year has been the largest turn out so far with everyone from office staff, support workers, family members, friends, and customers all proudly donning the Pacific Homecare (PHC) hot pink uniform.
Making us proud by pushing their limits through obstacle after obstacle all the way through to completion.
For the not so fit, the five kilometer coarse was no easy feat!
We are so proud of our crew who powered through every obstacle, up the hills, in the sluggy, muddy, slippery path (stopping for selfies!) all the way to the finish line and all with a smile.
We may even look at including the twelve kilometer extreme in our sponsorship next year for those of you who want to take it to the next level.
Hot pink was the uniform colour of choice this year. Gotta say, it did not disappoint! It was very unique and looked great on the field too.
We took the opportunity on the day to recognise and award those who participated in Biggest Losers this year. Ten thirty am was spot prizes time for those in attendance followed by the announcement of the Biggest Losers winners.
A massive congratulations to these winners who were focused on their goal and disciplined in themselves to achieve a combined weight loss of thirty four kilograms:
First: Oaseiletoafa Tanuvasa
Second: Losa Taufa
Third: Ellen Pakalani
Ofcourse the day would not be possible without the working bees behind the scenes who put in the hard yards to make the day possible without any hiccups. Emmily Samuel who organised the event, complete with cooks for the BBQ for those hungry tummy’s at the end of the morning and Tiffi Taiala for organising the spot prizes and running the biggest loser competition.
