David Massey, founder of the Rotorua Group Challenge Bootcamp, has been named as one of 10 grass roots volunteers in the running for a top spot in Lotto NZ and Sport NZ's 'Thank A Sport Maker' programme.
Three times a year, 10 grassroots volunteers win $2000 worth of sports gear. One of these winners will also take home a tailored experience for them and their team.
David runs the RGC Rotorua Group Challenge bootcamp, and volunteers his time twice a week and on weekends to put 360 people through their paces. There are three different categories for males and females, with an entry fee of just $20 for 12 weeks.
He weighs, measures and pinch tests all participants and at end of a 12-week challenge the winner takes the share of proceeds. There are three different categories for males and females, with an entry fee of just $20 for 12 weeks.
David spends countless hours motivating and encouraging everyone, and at the end of it all the proceeds from the challenge goes back to the participants in some way or another.
David and his fellow finalists will now compete in an online voting competition to decide who the winner of the team experience prize will be. The public can get behind their local Sport Maker by voting for them here. Voting runs until Friday 23 June.
The person that has the most votes at the end of the voting period will win the team experience.
