Waipuna Hospice challenge
Mount Everest Challenge

More than $121,000 was raised for Waipuna Hospice, as part of the More FM Mount Everest Challenge.

The challenge requires participants to climb up and down Mauao (Mount Maunganui) 38 times in 50 days as an individual or as a team.

Sport Bay of Plenty took up the challenge with 14 staff from the Tauranga office and their families getting involved.

During the challenge the participants recorded 192 climbs and raised nearly $500 to contribute towards the final funds.

Organised by our Active Families Advisor Lena, the challenge was a great way to get active and support a great local chairty.

Well done to everyone who took part!
